Abstract
Thyroid storm with seizures is very rare in children. The authors report 3 children with thyroid storm who had a seizure in the absence of a history of neurologic disease. Acute medical management with propylthiouracil, Lugol's iodine solution, hydrocortisone, and propranolol led to a complete resolution of the symptoms. Patients with thyroid storm may be predisposed to the development of neuropsychiatric change. Early recognition and treatment of thyroid storm are essential to reduce morbidity and mortality from this disorder.
