  • Coma

    Abstract Hypothyroidism is a commonly diagnosed endocrine disorder in medicine.[] Decompensated hypothyroidism is a rare endocrine emergency but a differential that should be considered in patients presenting critically unwell with systemic illness.[] Blood tests revealed severe hypothyroidism. During admission, the patient developed respiratory failure, renal failure, bleeding symptoms and diffuse colitis.[]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    To differentiate it from Guillian Barre syndrome, deep tendon reflexes are normal and 7th cranial nerve is spared.[] She had no symptom suggestive of hypothyroidism.[] […] hypokalemia and hypophosphatemia. 8 Thyrotoxicosis also causes similar muscle action potential changes but only when hyperthyroidism is uncorrected. 9-12 Less commonly, hypothyroidism[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Reasons for impaired water excretion include renal failure, volume depletion, high-ADH states, hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, and low osmolar intake.[] Urine osmolality can be elevated in hypovolemic states as well as SIADH, and is variable in hypothyroidism and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor administration.[] . • TSH and cortisol levels can exclude hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency, respectively, as causes of hyponatremia. 24, 23 • In potassium disorders, determination of[]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    In the majority of patients, deep tendon reflexes are markedly diminished or absent, although some patients may have brisk or normal jerks, even during paralysis ( 15 ).[] Thyrotoxicosis is less common than hypothyroidism.[] She had no symptom suggestive of hypothyroidism.[]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia

    EOCARR is characterized by dysarthria, gait ataxia, nystagmus, brisk tendon reflexes in the upper and lower limbs, absent ankle reflexes, and discrete or absent deep sensory[] Hypothyroidism can present with ataxia as presenting feature.[] Hypothyroidism Another underlying cause of cerebellar ataxia is hypothyroidism.[]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Debilitating muscle weakness, which is the main clinical manifestation of patients suffering from LEMS, is accompanied by reduced or absent deep tendon reflexes, and by various[] In most of these cases, LEMS is the first symptom of the lung cancer, and it is otherwise asymptomatic. [2] LEMS may also be associated with autoimmune diseases, such as hypothyroidism[] Deep tendon reflexes are usually decreased or absent.[]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia
