Abstract

Serum thyroid hormone levels have been assayed to evaluate the thyroid hormonal function in Vitiligo patients of Bangladesh. The levels of TSH, T3 and T4 in the serum of Vitiligo patients have been analyzed in both the male and female subjects. Results of hormonal assay indicated that some hormonal changes occurred in the Vitiligo patients as compared with the healthy control. In female Vitiligo patient's, TSH level was increased remarkably as compared to the control male patients, but T3 and T4 became lower than the normal range whereas, in case of male patients, T4 level was significantly higher than the T3 and TSH level. TSH level was significantly elevated in the female patients compared with the male patients.

Key words: Thyroid hormones, Vitiligo, TSH, T3 and T4 levels.
