A 37-year-old Woman with Altered Mental Status and Urinary Frequency


We present a case report of a patient who initially presented with altered mental status and significant urinary frequency. Over the course of her emergency department stay, she then developed tachycardia out of proportion to a new fever along with a respiratory alkalosis. Although each objective finding has a broad differential diagnosis, thyroid storm was the only unifying diagnosis when all findings were present. [West J Emerg Med 2013;14(2):177-179.]
