Abstract :

Disorders of thyroid gland have been recognized since time immemorial. There are abundant evidence that thyroid hormones may alter neurological function directly. Aim of the study was to study clinical profile of patients of Hypothyroidism to know various neurological manifestations and its prevalence.In the present study the patients with features of hypothyroidism who attended OPD & IPD at Department Of Medicine, PATNA MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL, PATNA for a period of one year from January 2018 to December 2018 were studied. The patients with Hypothyroidism who already had concomitant neurological disease like seizure, stroke etc. were excluded from the study. It was basically two stage programme. First stage was Establishment of diagnosis of hypothyroidism and second stage was Neurological status of these patients were studied.Among the neurological symptoms cognitive impairment was one of the most common symptom (78% of patient). Tingling and numbness was next(56.4%) followed by hand pain(CTS) which was seen in 52% of cases ,headache in 40% , slow and hoarse voice in 36%,loss of consciousness in 22%, convulsion in 16% and deafness in 10% 0f patients. Delayed relaxation of DTRs (Woltman’s) sign was positive in 76% of cases. Neurological manifestations was found to be high but nothing new reasons for neurological manifestations cropped in over previous studies, so early diagnosis and prompt management of cases may prevent neurological deficits.
