Özet

Purpose : Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is an autoimmune thyroid disorder. Although its etiopathogenesis is obscure, there are many findings about the relationship between other autoimmune diseases and HT. The reason for this association is a topic of interest, but in our study we searched for the concurrence of autoimmune hepatitis (AH) with HT, which is a relatively new autoimmune disorder for this association.
