Abnormalities in skeletal muscle function were characterized in 19 hypothyroid subjects and the extent and time course of recovery in these abnormalities after treatment determined. Slow muscle relaxation was observed on examination in 11 patients and 12 out of 16 patients had a reduced quadriceps maximum relaxation rate (MRR) and 11 out of 15 had a prolonged ankle jerk relaxation time (AJRT).
