Factitial Hyperthyroidism: A Diagnostic Challenge
AbstractThyrotoxicosis factitia is not very uncommon. There is a high likelihood

not only to significant patient morbidity but also put burden on
health-care resources. We report a case masquerading as refractory
thyrotoxicosis diagnosed to have uncontrolled hyperthyroidism.
