Hashitoxicosis in a pathological entity considered as the second cause in frequency after Graves Basedow's thyroiditis, characterized by a state of hypermetabolism due to the increase in thyroid hormones due to an inflammatory reaction to the thyroid gland.

We present the case of a 34-year-old female patient with cardiac comorbidities who presented to the terations in the tests of hormonal function compatible with hiperthyroidism, however, the determination of antibodies allowed to establish the diagnosis of Hashimoto's Disease.

This clinical case report is made due to the limited information on the knowledge of the mixed thyroid autoimmune effect in the same patient.

With the description of the case it is intended to open a range of more research of this type and thereby improve the quality of life of patients who have this pathology.
