Abstract

Hypokalemic periodic paralysis one of the channelopathy disorders with low serum potassium level, clinically presenting as acute onset extremity weakness. In most cases, the cause of the hypokalemia is familial, but rarely hypokalemic periodic paralysis occurs secondary to other diseases including endocrinopathies, renal disorders, gastrointestinal loss. We report a patient with no known underlying diseases, who were diagnosed with sporadic hypokalemic periodic paralysis accompanied by neurogenic diabetes insipidus.
