Abstract

Interferon beta therapy is a well-established treatment of patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Since type I interferons have immunomodulatory properties, these cytokines may trigger several autoimmune disorders. In this case, we report the development of autoimmune hypothyroidism in a multiple sclerosis patients receiving interferon-β 1a.
