A 39yr old primary school teacher presented with fever, headache, and palpitation. The fever was described as high grade, intermittent, with a generalized throbbing headache that was temporarily relieved with simple analgesic. While waiting for a medical attention at the emergency unit, he collapsed and developed a generalized tonic-clonic convulsion that lasted about 3 minutes. After the seizures he was noticed to have developed a left hemiplegia. Prior to this admission, he was said to have had a goiter 5 years ago which was poorly managed. On examination, his Thyroid Function Tests (TFT) was abnormal and consistent with that of hyperthyroidism.
