Abstract

We describe five children with varied rheumatic manifestations, including fibromyalgia and arthralgias, ultimately proved to be associated with hypothyroidism. All musculoskeletal symptoms improved after thyroid replacement therapy. We conclude that rheumatic manifestations of hypothyroidism can be as varied in children as in adults.
