A case of Amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis Type 1

Humayun Khan Huma

Introduction: Amiodarone, a drug with high iodine content, is commonly associated with thyroid dysfunction. There are two well-recognized forms of amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis. Thyrotoxicosis due to iodine excess leading to increased thyroid hormone synthesis is referred to as Amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis type 1 (AIT type 1) whilst thyrotoxicosis due to direct toxic effect (thyroiditis) is known is amiodarone induced thyrotoxicosis Type 2 (AIT type 2).

The dexamethasone suppression test (DST) is a common screening test in CushingÂ’s syndrome but associated with false positive result in 10-20%. One cause of false positivity is inadequate dexamethasone absorption. An assay to measure serum dexamethasone concentration can be used to validate the accuracy of the DST result.Aims: To audit 1) Use of the dexamethasone assay in DSTs 2) How frequently dexamethasone levels are inadequate 3) ...
