Abstract

Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada's syndrome has been known as an autoimmune disease which affects the melanocyte-containing tissues. We report a case of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada's syndrome associated with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. IgM-class antibodies against nevus cells were detected in the patient's serum by indirect immunofluorescence test. These clinical and laboratory findings support the autoimmune theory of this rare syndrome.
