Hypothyroidism is very common primarily due to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Management is usually straightforward with thyroid hormone replacement in symptomatic patients, although patients without symptoms but with significantly elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) may also benefit from treatment. Central hypothyroidism is rare and requires evaluation for a sellar mass.
