Weakness, of sudden or insidious onset, is the most common clinical manifestation, followed by cervical ventroflexion related to hypokalemic polymyopathy, that occurs most commonly with potassium concentrations close to 2.5mmol/L-1 (EGER et al., 1983; MACKAY et al., 1999; ASH et al., 2005; REIMER et al, 2005).
Generalized muscular weakness and polymyopathy causing cervical ventroflextion and flaccidity of muscles due to hypokalemia are common (Guyton and Hall, 2000).
