Abstract

A 16 year-old boy presented with adrenal crisis and was incidentally found to have features of latent tetany. Also detected were Hashimoto's thyroiditis, alopecia and subnormal T cell function, and he was diagnosed as having polyglandular autoimmune syndrome type 1 (PGA-1), although chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis, a hallmark of PGA-1, was absent. The presentation of several components of this disorder at one time and at this age is uncommon, and the features of overt hypoparathyroidism were probably masked by associated adrenal insufficiency.
