|The interaction of zinc deficiency and hypothyroidism has several reported presentations. The link between hypoglycemia and hypothyroidism is also known, but uncommon. For the last 40 years, the relationship between these two phenomena was illustrated in a handful of articles. We present a six-month-old boy with the unusual combination of these three conditions, his diagnostic evaluation and management. The case presentation is accompanied with a short literature review. According to the literature, zinc deficiency adversely affects thyroid function. Moreover, thyroid function correlates with the glucose homeostasis. Nevertheless, the association of zinc deficiency, hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia has not yet been described in the current available literature in English. Therefore, we suggest that the relationship between zinc and thyroid function should be considered in any case of severe intractable hypoglycemia and extensive skin eruption.|
