Synopsis: 
Thyrotoxic hypokalaemic 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 is reviewed from a West Indian perspective with an hypokalaemic periodic paralysis emphasis on the multiethnic presence of this illness in modern-day cosmopolitan populations.
