Abstract

Amiodarone is an effective cardiac antiarytmic drug. Long-term, high dose use of the drug is associated with skin discolouration, corneal deposition and alterations in thyroid hormone levels. We present the case of a 61-year-old woman suffering from the combination of these three side-effects.
