Periodic paralysis is a rare hereditary disorder which is characterized by recurrent muscle weaknesses due to the mutations within sodium, potassium or calcium ion channels. hypokalemia, normokalemia and hyperkalemia may be observed during the attacks. The atta-cks are usually occur by triggering factors such as by stress, cold, in¬fection, excessive exercise, and high carbohyd¬rate food consumption.
