Thyrotoxic Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis: A Case Series from Trinidad, West Indies

Issue: 
DOI: 
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
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.
