Rhabdomyolysis Secondary to Severe Hypothyroidism Due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: A Case Report.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis, a chronic autoimmune inflammation of the thyroid glands, is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in iodine-sufficient areas, which can have varied clinical manifestations. It is more common in females and usually has an insidious course. Most patients present with mild clinical symptoms, such as constipation, fatigue, and weakness. Symptoms are associated with a slight increase in thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels and the presence of thyroid antibodies. However, overt hypothyroidism is uncommon. We hereby present an interesting case of rhabdomyolysis secondary to severe hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
