Abstract

The authors present a case of pediatric autoimmune polyendocrinopathy, candidiasis, ectodermal dystrophy (APECED) which appears as a combination of hypoparathyroidism, Addison's disease, pancreatic failure, diabetes mellitus and rheumatoid arthritis. A report is given of the symptoms, analysis and the therapeutic approach followed during the last seven years with this subject. The association of APECED with rheumatoid arthritis seems to be extremely rare; a search of the literature failed to provide any indications as to this association.
