Abstract

Deranged liver enzymes due to hyperthyroidism rather than intrinsic liver pathology are not uncommon. We present two cases that highlight the impact of hyperthyroidism on liver biochemistry tests and good response to treatment. A high index of suspicion is paramount in patients presenting with unexplained deranged liver enzymes or jaundice.
