A 36-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of general fatigue and dysphagia. He had experienced progression of thyrotoxic symptoms of weight loss, palpitation and sweating for several months. On admission, he showed thyroid storm associated with dysphagia and aspiration pneumonia. Dysphagia was restored completely with 2 months after intensive treatment with anti-thyroid agent, beta-blocker, potassium iodide and glucocorticoid for thyroid storm. Although dysphagia is an uncommon manifestation, we should keep in mind that dysphagia may be one of symptoms of thyrotoxic myopathy.
