The Editor,

Sir,

Following the first description of Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS) in 2004, there have been hundreds of cases reported, up to recently. One of the largest series was at the Mayo Clinic (a non-profit organization in the United States of America) where five African-American patients, three Hispanics and 12 patients of ‘Other’ ethnicities were noted in a series of 98 cases of predominantly Caucasian patients (1, 2).

Thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis has rarely been described among West Indians. We draw attention to seven cases encountered on the island of Trinidad over a 25-year period in diverse ethnicities. All the cases were successfully treated. The global literature on thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis is reviewed from a West Indian perspective with an emphasis on the multiethnic presence of this illness in modern-day cosmopolitan populations.
