is no longer considered a sign of severity.
Two days later, he developed a sudden abdominal pain with hyperpyrexia
Clinical Presentation of Thyroid Storm * Hypermetabolic state * Hyperpyrexia
(>104[degrees] F) * Tachycardia (>130 bpm) * Palpitations/arrhythmia * Hypertension (with increased pulse pressure) * Hypotension (if shock develops) * Heat intolerance * Diaphoresis * Dehydration * Abnormal laboratory values * Dyspnea * Restlessness/irritability * Mental status change, delirium, stupor, coma * Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea * Multiple organ failure Sources: Akamizu et al.
Clinical manifestations of NMS are hyperpyrexia
, muscle rigidity, altered mental status, and evidence of autonomic instability (irregular pulse or blood pressure, tachycardia, diaphoresis, and cardiac dysrhythmia).
Increased requirements: Negative nitrogen balance and catabolism of tissue proteins occurs in immobilized patients in bed, especially if they have hyperpyrexia
and bedsores .
It causes symptoms of atropinic overdose such as dry mouth and mucous membranes, hyperpyrexia
, mydriasis, flushing, tachycardia, agitation and hallucinations, and features of central nervous system stimulation.
It is usually characterized by hyperpyrexia
, muscle rigidity, autonomic dysfunction, altered mental status, tremors, leukocytosis, and creatine kinase (CK) elevation.
Signs and symptoms of PSH include hypertension, tachycardia, diaphoresis, and hyperpyrexia
, of which [beta]-blockers are the mainstay of treatment (Bullard, 1987; Sneed, 1995).
Anhydrosis or loss of sweating is also an important feature of this condition resulting in repeated episode of hyperpyrexia
and febrile fits.
This group includes coronary atherosclerosis plaque rupture, haemorrhage, thrombosis, coronary spasm, severe stenosis, trauma and mezzanine as the basic pathophysiological characteristics, with the common characteristics of necrosis or acute myocardial ischemia caused by increasing myocardial consumption of oxygen, leading to hyperpyrexia
, severe anaemia and hyperthyroidism.

Factors that increase the likelihood of bacteraemia in febrile children include toxicity, hyperpyrexia
