Excluding a source of hemorrhage after blunt trauma in a patient who presents with a sustained tachycardia can be challenging. This report is of two trauma patients presenting with undiagnosed thyrotoxicosis. Trauma-triggered thyrotoxicosis is rarely reported in the literature. The confusing presentation, the laboratory analysis, and the response to therapeutic intervention are reviewed. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc.
