A Literature Review of Concomitant Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and Graves’ Disease

Although Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) is commonly characterized by extrahepatic manifestations of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), coexistence of PBC and Graves’ disease (GD) is uncommon. This is a review of the English and Japanese scientific literature, comprising 7 cases of PBC and GD coexistence. All patients were female. In 4 cases, both diseases were almost simultaneously diagnosed, whereas PBC preceded GD in the remaining 3 cases. One fatality was observed on account of sepsis and liver failure caused by progressing PBC.
