Nausea and Vomiting as Major Presenting Symptoms of Thyrotoxicosis

Yana Kogan, Nizar Elias, Mohammad Sheikh-Ahmad, Majed Odeh


Thyrotoxicosis has a variety of presentations which depend on its severity and duration, as well as the age of the patient. Nausea and vomiting as major presenting symptoms of thyrotoxicosis are rarely reported. We report three patients with nausea and vomiting as major presenting symptoms of thyrotoxicosis, where two of the patients were extensively investigated, and thyrotoxicosis was not suspected until late in the disease. In reporting these patients we aim at drawing attention to these forgotten symptoms of thyrotoxicosis, and particularly to emphasize that, at times nausea and vomiting may be the only presenting features of thyrotoxicosis, leading to considerable difficulty in diagnosis. Moreover, these case reports give further support to the contention that thyroid studies should be carried out in border indications than conventionally accepted.
