Abstract

Background An increased frequency of autoimmune thyroiditis is seen in patients with chronic urticaria and angioedema (CUA) and it has been hypothesized that autoimmunity may be playing a role in the pathogenesis of CUA. The aim of this study was to learn the extent of autoimmune thyroid disease in a series of patients who presented with CUA.
