        Take-Away Points of the Presentation

        1. Understand that severe or prolonged over or under production of hormones can lead to life-threatening emergencies; however, a precipitating cause precipitates almost all cases.

        2. One must maintain a high level of suspicion in order to diagnose an endocrine emergency.

        3. Supportive care and management of the underlying precipitant are the most important aspects of management of an endocrine emergency.
