Hypothyroid & Vascular Malformations
Can hypothyroidism be related to a vascular malformation in the area of the Thyroid?  I have a history of vascular malformations and am now awaiting a Thyroid Uptake test/scan to determine the cause of my low thyroid hormome levels.

Yes it can.

A vascular malformation in the area of the thyroid is called an 'Arterio-venous malformation (AVM)' and is basically known as Wyburn-Mason syndrome in some cases.

Why do you believe you have this in the thyroid area?
It is very rare indeed and I would be surprised if you had this.

Let us know how your scan goes as it will show up on an RAIU.
All the best :)
