In brief: Myxedema coma

Myxedema coma typically occurs as a result of long-standing hypothyroidism, and follows a period of progressive symptoms.
These symptoms may include weight gain, somnolence, and weakness amongst others. Abrupt discontinuation of thyroid hormone could also precipitate a myxedema coma.
