We reported one patient male, 17-year-old with sudden onset tetraparesis, inability to urinate without breathing difficulty. History of palpitation and increase of apetite since one month prior to admission. He also complained weight loss for the last two months. Physical examination revealed soft diffuse symmetric mass on anterior part of neck, 4x5 cm in size, fine border, fixed, moved when swallowing, no pain on palpation. The motor grade was II on upper limbs and I on lower limbs. Laboratory examinations showed severe hypokalemia, low TSH, low FT3, high FT4, and high TRab.
