PMID:  3985049     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the case of a woman with severe hypothyroidism and without concomitant myocardial damage, in whom elevated CK-MB values were measured by radioimmunological and enzymatic methods before and after thyroid replacement therapy. The patient's CK-MB activity was shown to be actually due to an atypical CK band between CK-MM and CK-MB (also termed "macro CK" or "idiopathic serum CK-BB").
