The development of post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is associated with an increased risk of acute rejection after kidney and liver transplantation, however, the outcomes after orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) have yet to be systematically studied.

Amiodarone is a commonly used anti-arrhythmic medication for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias in end-stage heart failure. Due to heavy iodine content, amiodarone is implicated in a variety of thyroid disorders, which could lead to adverse outcomes in cardiac transplant (CT) patients. Data on the development of post-CT lymphocytic thyroiditis (LT) in patients with pre-CT amiodarone use is limited. We aimed to study the development of amiodarone-induced LT in CT patients in a tertiary care transplant center in the United States.
