Teriparatide (parathyroid hormone N 1-34 fragment) is a novel anabolic therapy for the management of osteoporosis. This case report describes the rapid onset of action of teriparatide in improving bone mineral density in a 48 year old lady with thyrotoxicosis and osteoporosis who had not responded to alendronate and tibolone. The etiologic factors for osteoporosis were postmenopausal state and iatrogenic thyrotoxicosis due to administration of high doses of L-thyroxine over 10 years.
