Hypothyroidism may induce a wide range of neurological complaints, frequently described in the past, but nowadays rarely reported due to earlier diagnosis and treatment. By investigating a series of neurologically asymptomatic, untreated patients with hypothyroidism, either overt (OH) or subclinical (SH), we found in 11% of them an asymptomatic polyneuropathy, as assessed by conventional neurophysiological studies (1) . In the same group of patients, using a skin biopsy technique, we observed a significant reduction of intra-epidermal nerve fiber (IENF) density with a prevalence of 60% and 25% in OH and SH, respectively © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
