ConclusionThis is the first report of the full triad of APS-2 developing in a genetically susceptible individual at the age of 78 after treatment with an anti-PD1 agent. Although scarcely reported, a literature review of similar reports seems to indicate a predilection for this syndrome in patients with HLA-DR4 serotypes. HLA Class II typing is not routinely recommended, but may provide useful predictive information for patients at risk of poly-endocrinopathy even in patients without a relevant personal or family history. Additional studies are required to determine if such testing would be useful and/or cost effective.

Conclusion: In conclusion, this study demonstrates that the influence of chronic diseases (bronchial asthma, diabetes mellitus type 1 and hypothyroidism) on olfactory function in childhood, if any, seems to be insignificant. This is partly in contrast to adult patients. Further research should be conducted in a subgroup of patients with bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis or other comorbidities to better understand the association of allergic diathesis and olfactory function and the putative pathogenesis of olfactory dysfunction.What is known:• The association between smell impairment and chroni...

AbstractSelective immunoglobulin A deficiency (SIgAD) is the most common primary immunodeficiency, defined as an isolated deficiency of IgA (less than 0.07  g/L). Although the majority of people born with IgA deficiency lead normal lives without significant pathology, there is nonetheless a significant association of IgA deficiency with mucosal infection, increased risks of atopic disease, and a higher prevalence of autoimmune disease. To explain thes e phenomena, we have performed an extensive literature review to define the geoepidemiology of IgA deficiency and particularly the relative risks for developing systemic...

Rationale: The misdiagnosis of hypopituitarism is common due to its rarity and its nonspecific clinical manifestations. Our case report highlights the importance of critical evaluation regarding hypopituitarism as a cause of recurrent hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, and gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with T1DM, as misdiagnosis might be fatal to the patient. Patient concerns: We herein report the case of 35-year-old female patient who presented with 18 years of history of well-controlled type 1 diabetes mellitus and a 6-month history of recurrent nausea and vomiting, generalized weakness, hyponatremia, and severe hy...

ConclusionThe overall prevalence of congenital hypothyroidism in young patients up to 3  years is 0.143%, these values are at least twice those of previous estimates. This proposes an elevation in autoimmune thyroid disease, which is similitude to the rising prevalence of diabetes type 1, which possibly indicates a rising incidence of autoimmunity in youth.

CONCLUSIONS: We report concomitant endocrine disease in 7.76 % of our 708 SLE cohort followed, for almost 40 years, at UCLH. These patients have increased liability to develop a second endocrine disease, but overall there is no difference in terms of mortality between SLE patients with or without an endocrinopathy. It is important to capture endocrine diseases in SLE as the symptoms they cause may mimic SLE features, but require quite distinct treatment. PMID: 31172923 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
