Abstract
Autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD), also called chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis or Hashimoto thyroiditis, is an inflammatory thyroiditis that is characterized by thyroid lymphocytic infiltration. It's one of the commonest causes of hypothyroidism, that has been associated with several autoimmune diseases including rheumatologic syndromes and connectives tissue diseases and has long been known to have several manifestations particularly in association with hypothyroidism. However, in some cases, especially when thyroid function is normal, several arguments are in favor of autoimmunity mechanisms, or the presence of an overlap syndrome, rather than thyroid dysfunction. There is also considerable evidence that AITD is highly associated with polyalgic syndrome or fibromyalgia. We report a 53 years old a case, followed for bilateral symmetric chronic polyarthritis, seronegativ, non-distorting and non-destructive since 6 years, coupled with a seacca syndrome, and arthromyalgic revealing autoimmune thyroiditis.
