Abstract

We report the case of a 70 year-old Tunisian patient who developed antimitochondrial antibodies and anti-ADN during urogenital tuberculosis with clinical and biological signs of primary biliary cirrhosis and systemic lupus erythematosus. We discuss the association of the three diseases and the etiopathogeny of the autoimmune mechanisms induced by Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
