VELASQUEZ DUQUE, María del Pilar  e  BERNAL MIRANDA, Jaime. Atypical presentation of an induced hyperthyroidism. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2013, vol.42, n.1, pp.144-150. ISSN 0034-7450.

We present the case of a person with baseline Bipolar Affective Disorder, who starts receiving medical treatment for subclinical Hypothyroidism, during this time the patient develops Hy-perthyroidism. During the course of the latter, the patient started to exhibit depressed mood symptoms and worsening of her baseline disorder. Typically there are depressive symptoms in hypothyroidism and manic symptoms in hyperthyroidism, there have been a few cases of depressive symptoms (depressed mood, asthenia and apathy) reported in patients with hyperthyroidism. Up till now it's a fact that Hyperthyroidism constitutes itself as a risk factor for developing or precipitating depressive states, thus increasing hospital readmissions, and another important fact is that of manifiesting or worsening affective symptoms due to the influence of thyroid hormones. We also present the well-known relationship between thyroid malfunction and affective disorders.
