Abstract:

Abnormalities of coagulation have been reported in patients with thyroid dysfunction, although there is no clear information to explain the mechanism behind such irregularities. We are presenting a case of subclinical hypothyroidism that came with coagulation disturbance (hypocoagulation). Her symptoms resolved with leothyroxin in 4 weeks. Further studies are needed to clear the pathogenesis of the coagulation disturbance in such setting. The article also outlines some patents on hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
