Here we describe a 13-year-old adolescent female diagnosed with concurrent autoimmune disorders including Grave disease, Celiac disease, and autoimmune hepatitis within 3 months after infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. The patient initially presented to her pediatrician with complaints of epistaxis, cessation of menses, palpitations, and weight loss. Initial evaluation showed evidence of hyperthyroidism, elevated liver enzymes, and abnormal Celiac disease serologies. Additional testing including laboratory tests, liver biopsy, and an upper endoscopy with biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of Grave disease, Celiac disease, and type 1 autoimmune hepatitis. This case highlights the importance of recognizing the risk of autoimmune disorders associated with the novel coronavirus disease 2019.
