Article title

Graves' disease, celiac disease and liver function abnormalities in a patient - clinical manifestation and diagnostic difficulties

Title variants
Languages of publication
Autoimmune diseases due to probable common pathogenesis tend to coexist in some patients. Complex clinical presentation with diverse timing of particular symptoms and sophisticated treatment with numerous side effects, may cause diagnostic difficulties, especially in children. The paper presents diagnostic difficulties and pitfalls in a child with Graves' disease, celiac disease and liver function abnormalities.
