A 53-year-old woman was admitted because of Raynaud's phenomenon, polyarthralgia and polymyalgia. Biopsy specimens of the liver and thyroid gland revealed characteristic findings of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) (stage I by Scheuer's classification) and chronic thyroiditis. Her clinical features were also complicated by scleroderma (type I by Barnett's classification) and Sjögren's syndrome (Sjs) with keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Thyroid hormone replacement therapy led to improvement in thyroid function, normalization of the biliary tract enzymes and alleviation of subjective symptoms.
