Result: A total number of 75 patients were recruited for this study who were divided in to two group designated as group I or sub clinical hypothyroidism and group II or clinical hypothyroidism. Fetal distress was 22(51.1%) cases in group I and 9(33.3%) cases in group II. The fetal outcome of the study patients had observed that 8(27.6%) and 12(80.0%) of the baby had low (<2.5 kg) birth weight in group I and group II' respectively. In group I most (62.1%) of the baby APGAR score was >7 and 11(73.3%) cases had < 6 APGAR score at 1st minute. Majority of the study patients had >7 APGAR score at 5 min in both groups which was 25(86.2%) and 12(80.0%) in group I and group II respectively.
