Acute urinary retention and hyponatremia from central hypothyroidism

Erkabu Samson, Taddese Zerihun, Bearega Biniam, Daniel Eyuel, Birhanu Mekonen

Abstract: A mass arising from the pituitary gland commonly damages cells of the anterior pituitary gland and affects the secretion of gonadotropins and growth hormone. However, central hypothyroidism and secondary adrenal insufficiency from such damage is a rare phenomenon. Acute urinary retention as the main symptom of central hypothyroidism is also an unusual initial presentation. We report a male patient who comes with frequent urinary retention and hyponatremia at our hospital.
