Wei-Che Lin

Thyroid function abnormality is associated with some psychiatric symptoms although its mechanism is unclear completely. Some research showed that it may be the regulation of thyroid hormones in specifi c brain region. Most common condition is mood disorder such as mania or depression in thyroid dysfunction patient. But schizophrenia-like patient in my case report here is really rare.
