Lithium salts are widely recognized to cause biochemical hypothyroidism and have been used to treat thyrotoxicosis. We present a case of Graves' disease which developed during lithium therapy. The patient was asymptomatic until the lithium was discontinued; she subsequently developed florid symptoms of thyrotoxicosis.
