Özet

Recovery of the ventricular function in a patient with cardiomyopathy is very rare. Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome is also very rare. We herein report a case of reversed cardiomyopathy associated with autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type II (Schmidt's syndrome) composed of Addison's disease, vitiligo and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The ventricular function and size were reversed following the administration of suitable hormone replacement therapy for polyendocrine syndrome.
