Amiodarone, an anti-arrhtthmic drug that contains 39% iodine, is rarely known to cause negative effects on fetal thyroid function after gestational exposure, when given orally to a pregnant woman. Two cases of fetal hypothyroidism after gestational exposure to amiodarone by direct fetal intravenous route are described here.
