A 39-year-old woman presented with an acute left hemisphere stroke and was found to have severe hyperthyroidism. She developed an acute right brachial artery occlusion while under continuous cardiac monitoring, and at no time exhibited atrial fibrillation. This case, and a review of the literature, suggests that thromboembolism occurs in thyrotoxicosis without atrial fibrillation.
