Alparslan Ersoy, Canan Ersoy

After a successful kidney transplant, thyroid hormone metabolism normalizes. Although increased frequency of goiter and thyroid adenomas have been observed, hyperthyroidism is very rare. Herein, we report two kidney transplant recipients under immunosuppressive therapy that presents with hyperthyroidism.

Key words: Kidney transplant, hyperthyroidism, toxic multinodular goiter
