Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type III (APS III) is characterised by autoimmune destruction of various endocrine and non-endocrine tissues. It differs from APS I and APS II in terms of without adrenal involvement. Although APS III includes a series of autoimmune disorders, it is rarely associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). A 41-year-old female patient had diplopia, visual blurring, dizziness, and giddiness for 2 weeks. In her medical history, she had a diagnosis of MS and using Teriflunomide. It was detected positivity of antinuclear antibody (ANA), anti-thyroid peroxidase (Anti-TPO) and anti-thyroglobulin (Anti-TG) antibodies. Based on these results, the patient with MS who has chronic autoimmune thyroiditis and primary ovarian failure was diagnosed with APS III. The coexistence of APS-III and MS is a rare clinical entity. Moreover, hypothyroidism has been detected during teriflunomide therapy in the patient. Hypothyroidism was most likely a component of APS-III in our case, but it may also have been triggered by teriflunomide.

Keywords: Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type III; multiple sclerosis; teriflunomide
