Background and Aim: Provision of timely healthcare for children under 5 years of age specially children with congenital hypothyroidism and also regular monitoring of growth through measuring weight, height and head circumference have been of great importance. The aim of this study was to make a comparison between healthy children and children with congenital hypothyroidism in regard to health-care coverage in Iran. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in five provinces in different geographical areas of Iran in 2015. 240 children with congenital hypothyroidism and 240 healthy children were entered into the study. Children with congenital hypothyroidism were selected randomly from the national registere database. The children in the control group were matched with the children with hypothyroidism in regard to age, gender and place of residence. Anthropometric indices including weight, height and head circumference of the children of less than 3 years of age were recorded as the health care indices. STATA software version 13 was used for data analysis. Results: The mean percentage of measurement and record of weight, height and head circumference in children below 3 years of age with congenital hypothyroidism were 82.1, 78.7 and 55.4%, respectively. The mean percentage of measurement and record of weight, height and head circumference in healthy children (control group) below 3 years of age were 82.2%, 80.9 and 55.1%, respectively. There was a statistically significant difference between the two groups in relation to the percentage of height measurement (P =0.02). Conclusion: According to the results of this study, percentage of measurement and record of the anthropometric indices in Iranian children of less than 3 years of age is low. More attention to the measurement and record of these physical growth indices in children of less than 3 years of age specially children with congenital hypothyroidism who need regular follow up, is essential. © 2018, Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences.
