Abstract

Several patients with both Basedow-Graves' hyperthyroidism and viral hepatitis were observed and it was hypothesised that this association could be explained by the individual genetic pattern in which an immunological fragility concitioned a predisposition to auto-immune diseases. This paper reports on the cases observed, the patients' histocompatiblity antigen profile and the experimental data found in the literature on auto-immune involvement in the two diseases, whose association may not be coincidental.
