Hypothyroidism is a common endocrinal disorder which may present as an unusual presentation like dysarthria. Knowledge about unusual presentations in hypothyroidism may help to make correct diagnosis and treatment. This case series includes two cases of hypothyroidism-induced dysarthria. Both cases were misdiagnosed on previous medical consultations. Complete recovery was achieved after correct diagnosis and thyroxin replacement.
