Are Māori women at increased risk of cardiac complications of Graves disease?
Parul Nigam, Adam Morton

Abstract


We present a case series of three women of New Zealand Māori ethnicity, who presented to the emergency department of a Brisbane hospital (Brisbane, Australia) with symptomatic cardiac complications of Graves disease requiring hospital admission.

We raise the question as to whether individuals of Māori ethnicity are genetically susceptible to cardiac complications of thyrotoxicosis.
