AbstractVitiligo and thyroid disease are well known to be associated. Sera from 22 patients of vitiligo without any clinical evidence for thyroid dysfunction were assayed for triiodothyronine, thyroxine and thyrotropin levels. Six cases showed increased levels for triiodothyronine. This appears to be an adaptive change.
