Abstract

Turner's syndrome is a chromosomal disease frequently associated with autoimmune conditions including thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and diabetes. Recent reports have described an association with TS and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Here we report the case of a 11 -year-old girl with TS associated with T1DM. Our case is presented because of the rarity.
