Hyperthyroidism is a commonly encountered endocrine disease that can be associated with a wide array of symptoms. Among the latter, rythmological manifestations are relatively frequent and comprise mainly supraventricular tachycardia (atrial fibrillation, flutter, sinus tachycardia, and atrial tachycardia). However, very few ventricular dysrhythmias have been described in literature. We report here the case of a woman in her late fifties who presented hemodynamically well-tolerated ventricular tachycardia in a context of thyrotoxicosis due to iodine overload.
