The clinical presentation of hypothyroidism often masquerades several illnesses. Dyslipidemia is a common accompaniment of hypothyroidism and these patients are more prone for statin induced myopathy. Treatment with levothyroxine itself is sufficient to correct the dyslipidemia We report a case of primary hypothyroidism that presented with hyperuricemia, intractable hyperlipidemia and developed myopathy with usage of lipid lowering agents.
