Özet

A six year-old boy with common variable immunodeficiency developed insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, autoimmune thyroiditis, and total alopecia leading to the diagnosis of autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2. Previously unreported co-occurence of these two entities may be explained by strong autoimmunity and HLA association of both conditions.
