Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Kilnefelter's syndrome (KFS) tends to be associated with autoimmune diseases. Although several reports describe association of KFS with different autoimmune diseases, association with rheumatoid arthritis is very rare. We report a case of (KFS) who had seropositive erosive rheumatoid arthritis, and discuss the role of sex hormones/X chromosome in the pathogenesis of disease.
