Abstract

The resolution of periodic paralysis with restoration of euthyroidism has been acknowledged as a universal finding in thyrotoxic periodic paralysis. This case is reported because hypokalemic periodic paralysis continued when the clinical and laboratory examinations indicated euthyroidism. The patient continued to have symptoms of periodic paralysis when he progressed to hypothyroidism.
