Selective IgA deficiency, hypothyroidism and congenital lymphoedema
The occurrence of selective IgA deficiency and hypothyroidism with congenital lymphoedema has never previously been documented, although the association of hypogammaglobulinaemia with congenital lymphoedema has previously been reported and can result in recurrent respiratory infections. We report a 34 year old woman with congenital lymphoedema who was found to have symptomatic autoimmune hypothyroidism and asymptomatic selective IgA deficiency.
