We diagnosed thyrotoxicosis (Tx) and chronic lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) in nine cases; seven had chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), one had hairy cell leukemia (HCL) and one had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). In a literature review, we found only one reported case with Tx and CLL and documentation of an higher incidence of Tx in the relatives of CLL patients. We report these nine cares here and discuss this interesting association.
