Thyroid hormone is required for the normal growth and maturation of the skeleton. The action of thyroid hormone on skeleton is varied, including direct chondrocyte and osteoblast stimulation, as well as potentiating the action of growth hormone on the bone. Juvenile hypothyroidism is evolving as the most common form of thyroid dysfunction in the growing age, and it has different radiological manifestations from that of congenital hypothyroidism. We present the skeletal X-rays of a 24-year-old man with juvenile onset autoimmune hypothyroidism (duration of illness of approximately 16 years), who came for evaluation of short stature.
