    Pretibial myxedema may undergo partial or complete remission and is primarily a cosmetic concern. Apart from treatment of the primary thyroid abnormality, topical or intralesional steroids remain the mainstay of treatment. We report a case of a 64 year old man who presented with asymptomatic indurated plaques on both legs. Myxoedema coma is a medical emergency with high mortality. In this study, clinical response and plasma variations of thyroid hormones were analysed in 7 patients, 6 presenting with myxoedema coma and one with myxoedema ileus. These patients were treated with intravenous or oral l-thyroxine (l-T4). mu l-T4 iv were administered in two patients.

    The fall in the calcium output only affects the urine, and it is in the [deg] urine that the increased calcium output occurs after thyroid feeding. The faecal output of calcium is normal in myxoedema and is not affected by thyroid feeding. In untreated myxoedema the phosphorus balance is positive, compared with a negative balance in normal by:   Laboratory data revealed a thyroid-stimulating hormone of µIU/mL. The patient was diagnosed with myxoedema coma. She was started on intravenous hydrocortisone and intravenous levothyroxine. Over the next 3 weeks, the patient regained consciousness, symptoms improved and the myxoedema resolved. Four weeks after admission, she was Author: David Samuel Gish, Richard Thomas Loynd, Stephen Melnick, Salik Nazir.

Primary hypothyroidism occurs when there is permanent loss or atrophy of thyroid tissue. This condition accounts for 90–95% of cases of myxedema coma. Serum TSH is elevated, whereas free T 4 values are low.

Less than 5% of cases of myxedema coma result from hypothalamic or pituitary dysfunction (central hypothyroidism).
