Caption: Heart myxoedema in hyperthyroidism. Light micrograph of a section through a heart affected by myxoedema from a person with hyperthyroidism.

Myxoedema is a dermatological change that may occur in hyperthyroidism and results in swelling of the affected area. Here, it has caused swelling of the heart tissue.
