Özet

Polyglandular autoimmune (PGA) syndromes (types I and II) may affect various endocrine and non-endocrine organs in the body. In the commoner PGA type II, primary adrenal insufficiency, autoimmune thyroid disease and type I diabetes mellitus are the most frequent manifestations. Serositis with pericardial or pleural involvement is not a well known component of the disease. Here, we report a 21-year-old man who first presented with a pleuropericardial effusion and Graves' disease, and who then developed type I diabetes mellitus.
