Abstract
A patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is described who had associated autoimmune thyroiditis with subclinical hypothyroidism and idiopathic Addison's disease. The presence of autoimmune thyroid disease and Addison's disease could classify her as having polyglandular autoimmune syndrome (PGAS) type II, which is the commonest of the three types of this syndrome. However, the additional presence of SLE in PGAS type II has not been described earlier. This patient appears to be the first such case.

Cardiac tamponade is a life-threatening medical emergency and can arise in many clinical situations. We present the case of a 59-year-old man with adrenoleukodystrophy and Addison's disease who was admitted to the emergency department with severe abdominal pain that turned out to be cardiac tamponade of unknown aetiology. An association between cardiac tamponade and Addison's disease has been reported in the literature, so this aetiology should be considered in the differential diagnosis for pat...

Eight years prior to her present admission, a 61-year-old Japanese woman was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, slowly progressive insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and chronic thyroiditis; she had been treated with oral prednisolone (PSL). After she suddenly discontinued PSL, she newly developed systemic lupus erythematosus. A combination therapy of oral PSL and intravenous cyclophosphamide resulted in remission. She was finally diagnosed with autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type 3...

We describe a case of a 40-year-old woman who was admitted to the intensive care unit with a rapid onset of dyspnea and orthopnea. She presented progressive weakness, weight loss and secondary amenorrhea during last year, while intermittent fever was present for the last two months. Initial biochemical evaluation showed anemia, hyponatremia and increased C-reactive protein levels. Clinical and echocardiographic evaluation revealed cardiac tamponade, which was treated with pericardiocentesis. Ple...
