Several studies have established links between thyroid gland dysfunction and mood disorders, in particular major depressive disorder (MDD). Preliminary evidence also suggests that thyroid hormone gene variants influence grey matter (GM) volume, which is reportedly altered in patients with MDD. This study tested for associations of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in two thyroid hormone transporter genes with regional GM volume differences in a large sample population of patients with recurrent MDD and healthy volunteers.
