DIAZ N, Rienzi  e  SILVA G, Danilo. Acute pulmonary edema as a first manifestation of hyperthyroidism in a pregnant woman. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2008, vol.136, n.3, pp.356-358. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872008000300012.

We report a 36 year-old pregnant woman who presented with acute pulmonary edema in the absence of preexisting cardiac disease. On admission she was on sinus rhythm and her blood pressure was mildly elevated. No cardiac abnormalities were detected by color Doppler echo car diography and no ischemic changes were seen on the electrocardiogram. Cardiac enzymes were normal. Thyroid function tests were diagnostic for hyperthyroidism. She was treated with propylthiouracil and propranolol and discharged in good conditions seven days after admission. This case emphasizes the need to consider hyperthyroidism as the cause of unexplained pulmonary edema in young patients with no history of heart disease who present with heart failure
