Echocardiography is used to assess cardiac parameters. Altered parameters can affect the morbidity in patients of hypothyroidism so echocardiography can be used to assess morbidity in such cases. Aims and Objective: To measure cardiac functions in patients of hypothyroidism and to correlate cardiac functions with euthyroid state. Material and Methods: The study conducted at M.M.I.M.S.R, Mullana. Ambala. Fifty individuals were included in the study out of them 25 were cases and 25 were control.

All the patients were scrutinized and investigated as per the plan. All were subjected to evaluation by echocardiography, electrocardiography and x-ray chest. Results: In our study there was significant increase in left ventricular mass with preserved left ventricular systolic function. Conclusion: Echocardiography can be used as a sensitive tool to assess morbidity associated with hypothyroidism.
