Abstract Despite earlier recognition and treatment of hyperthyroidism, thyroid storm remains a life-threatening, although fortunately rare, medical emergency. Prompt recognition and aggressive treatment employing a multifaceted approach are generally effective at correcting the homeostatic decompensation that is the hallmark of thyroid storm. Research is furthering understanding of the cellular actions of thyroid hormone and may lead to additional, even more effective treatment modalities in the future.
