Abstract

Thyrotoxic Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis (THPP) is a rare complication of thyrotoxicosis and can sometimes be fatal. It needs early recognition for proper management and prevention of recurrences. Here we describe two cases presenting with acute onset of paresis, low potassium levels, low levels of thyroid-stimulating hormones (TSH), and elevated thyroid hormone levels.
