    We describe a young woman with primary adrenal insufficiency, hypoparathyroidism (autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1), Graves disease, vitiligo, and alopecia universalis. Five years after the diagnosis, she presented with recurrent ophthalmological and neurological disorders as features of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome. A marked therapeutic response was noted on systemic high-dose corticosteroid treatment. To the best of our knowledge, such a spectre of autoimmune diseases has not been reported previously.
