Andersen–Tawil syndrome (ATS) is an autosomal dominant disorder, characterized by the triad of muscular paralysis, skeletal, and craniofacial anomalies and prolonged QT interval on echocardiogram with a tendency toward malignant ventricular arrhythmia. Although the patient may express one or two of the three components of triad, hypothyroidism is an endocrine disorder resulting in the delayed eruption of teeth, defective mineralization of bone and teeth, and speech and hearing deformity. Here, we report a case of ATS with hypothyroidism. To the best of authors' knowledge, no such association has been reported in the literature.
