Abstract

Women with postpartum psychosis are at higher risk not only of AITD but also of clinical thyroid failure. These data implicate thyroid function as an important clinical outcome in patients with postpartum psychosis. Further, AITD represents a potentially strong aetiological factor for the development of postpartum psychosis. Therefore, screening for thyroperoxidase antibodies is warranted in patients with postpartum psychosis.
