[Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 in pregnancy: a case report].

Autoimmune polyglandular syndromes are conditions characterized by the association of two or more organ-specific disorders. On the basis of the clinical picture, they are divided into four different types. If undiagnosed and untreated, autoimmune polyglandular syndromes may pose a serious risk to patients. We report here a case of a pregnant woman with autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2. She was diagnosed with Addison's disease 11 months before the onset of the pregnancy and until the end of the first trimester the disease was effectively controlled by hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone treatment. In the tenth week of gestation, the patient developed Graves' disease and the treatment with propylthiouracil was started treatment leading to the unmasking of adrenal insufficiency, which required titration of hydrocortisone dose. Our study shows that autoimmune polyglandular syndromes should be considered in every pregnant woman with any autoimmune endocrine disease and that the treatment of these syndromes during gestation may be challenging.
