deficiency--This makes the body deficient in multiple hormones.
Coincidental presentation of vitiligo and psoriasis in a patient with polyglandular
These five chapters cover Addison's disease, premature ovarian failure, autoimmune hypophysis, and autoimmune polyglandular
syndromes type I and type II.
Key Words: autoimmune thyroid disease, Graves disease, celiac disease, hypoparathyroidism, autoimmune polyglandular
If adrenal autoantibodies are detected, the presence of an autoimmune polyglandular
syndrome should be entertained.
Antibodies against the adrenal cortex, thyroid peroxidase, parietal cells, and intrinsic factor were present, establishing the diagnosis of autoimmune polyglandular
syndrome type 2.
Topics addressing individual predisposition include basic mechanisms in autoimmunity and contributing or environmental factors, autoimmune thyroid disease, including animal models, autoantigens, Grace's Disease, hypothyroidism, postpartum thyroiditis, ophthalmopathy and dermopathy; Type I diabetes mellitus, including animal models, islet cell autoantigens; other autoimmune endocrinopathy's, including Addison's disease, premature ovarian failure, hypophysitis and autoimmune polyglandular
This rare disease goes by a variety of other names including autoimmune polyglandular
syndrome (APS), polyglandular
autoimmune syndrome (PGA) and autoimmune polyendocrinopathy syndrome.
11) In a subsequent study, 56% of patients with acquired hypoparathyroidism and autoimmune polyglandular
syndrome 1 had autoantibodies directed against the extracellular portion of the parathyroid calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), the autoantigen now suggested to cause parathyroid failure.
