Thyroid storm is a rare occurrence in the adult population and is even more unusual in children. The current report is of a 3.5-year-old girl who had thyroid storm with unique neurologic manifestations, namely seizure and coma. Acute medical management with propylthiouracil, saturated solution of potassium iodide, hydrocortisone, and propranolol brought about complete resolution of symptoms.
