Poor compliance is the most common cause of elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone in patients with hypothyroidism who are on levothyroxine replacement. We present an interesting report of a patient who was a known case of primary hypothyroidism and had been euthyroid for more than 5 years on 75 μg daily levothyroxine, suddenly became grossly hypothyroid and diagnosed to have Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP) with nephritis.
