In brief: MVP Hypothyrodism

Not commonly, but the prevalence of mitral valve prolapse (mvp) is substantially greater in patients with autoimmune thyroid disorders such as graves' disease and hashimoto's thyroiditis.
So it's not just hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland is quite common, especially in individuals over 50, and is usually not associated with mvp.
