• A 37-year-old white man with a multinodular goiter had thyrotoxicosis develop after iodine administration (Jodbasedow). His hyperthyroid state was accompanied by thyrotoxic periodic paralysis, a complication of hyperthyroidism that is usually seen in Orientals. The patient manifested typical features of each disorder. As classically described, these two thyroidrelated disorders should rarely coexist because of epidemiologic considerations; however, the population at risk may be greater than has generally been appreciated.
