Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypothyroidism may lead to secondary pseudoobstruction. We report a patient with intestinal symptoms from hypothyroidism in which previous conventional examinations were negative. Gastrointestinal manometry disclosed features of pseudoobstruction, and we discuss the importance of performing functional studies in selected cases, in as much as symptoms seemed to resolve on replacement therapy.
