We report a toddler with massive thyroid hormone poisoning in whom the addition of iopanoic acid to the treatment regimen (propylthiouracil and propranolol) resulted in a dramatic clinical and biochemical improvement. Iopanoic acid is a safe and effective drug in the treatment of massive thyroid hormone poisoning in children.
