Thyroid dysfunction is one of the most common adverse effects of amiodarone therapy, ranging from subclinical changes to overt clinical thyrotoxicosis (AIT) and/or hypothyroidism. Due to its heterogeneity, AIT lasts as a defiant entity, leading to a thorny treatment course, particularly in pediatrics. AIT can be classified as either type 1, type 2 or mixed form based on its pathophysiology. Differentiating between the main AIT subtypes is quite relevant, since there is specific treatment for both, however, this distinction may be difficult in clinical practice. We describe a rare case of AIT in a pediatric patient, with an uncommon congenital cardiac malformation, that started amiodarone therapy due to paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. AIT was reported 26 months after drug onset, with a sudden and explosive emerging. This case highlights the current AIT management challenges on the highdemanding pediatric field pursuing, ultimately, an enhanced patient´'s care.

AbstractRetrospective studies can be considered as the first step towards an evaluation and improvement of homoeopathic practice. Through these preliminary studies, criteria for future prospective studies can be chosen as well as suitable homoeopathic practitioners to conduct them. From this study, we can conclude that disorders of heart rhythm seem to be an excellent subject for research into the efficacy of homoeopathy. Especially for paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, all patients were cured and able to discontinue their allopathic medication. In view of the fact that 50% of the patients included in this study stopped the use of allopathic drugs, one can conclude that homoeopathy certainly has a place in the treatment strategy of these diseases.
