Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two members of a family from Guyana, South America, developed thyrotoxicosis within one year of migration to the United States. Both patients had pre-existing multinodular goiters. Their clinical manifestation was consistent with that of iodide-induced thyrotoxicosis. This syndrome may be more common than previously reported in the United States. Physicians practicing in inner-city areas with a significant immigrant population should be more aware of this entity.
