dc.description.abstractAn association between hypothyroidism and renal impairment has rarely been reported in the literature. We describe a case of hypothyroidism that was associated with otherwise unexplained acute kidney impairment, which was reversed with treatment. A 21-year-old female patient presented to her family physician with myalgia, and preliminary investigations revealed an elevated level of creatine kinase and poor renal function. Primary hypothyroidism was diagnosed and no other apparent etiology for renal failure could be identified despite extensive investigations by the Nephrology Department. Notably, the patient's renal impairment showed prompt resolution following thyroid hormone replacement.en_US
