The occurrence of cardiovascular manifestations as results of induced thyrotoxicosis has not been commonly recorded. It is the purpose of this paper to report two cases in which the ingestion of excessively large doses of desiccated thyroid substance was associated with cardiovascular manifestations. The evidence to be presented leaves no reasonable doubt that these changes were the results of induced thyrotoxicosis.
