Abstract

Atrial fibrillation is a common cardiac arrhythmia. Amiodarone is an effective drug used for atrial fibrillation treatment. Various side effects of this drug including amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis are discussed. A clinical case is presented to provide data for the differential diagnosis between types 1 and 2 of amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis and to define approaches to the treatment.
