Known as Hashitoxicosis to Hashimoto's thyroiditis coexisting with episodes of hyperthyroidism. It is caused by excessive release of thyroid hormone in a patient previously diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease. It may be more common than previously thought, due to the apparent increase in patients with Hashimoto's disease and / or developments in its diagnosis. We report the case of a female patient 12 years of age, that clinical hyperthyroidism is diagnosed by Graves Basedow disease. However, initial studies and the subsequent evolution of the patient, the diagnosis oriented toward a different etiology.

Keywords : Hashitoxicosis; hyperthyroidism; hypothyroidism.
