Idiopathic Pancreatitis, Newly Diagnosed Diabetes Mellitus I, and Hypothyroidism in a Young Patient with Recent COVID-19 Infection

Amin Elfituri*, Firas Warda, Leena Shahla, Faisal Bukeirat

We present a young patient who came into the emergency department initially with abdominal pain, diagnosed with pancreatitis, but was found to have diabetic ketoacidosis, and later was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. We suspected the patient's diagnoses to be related to autoimmunity that was induced by his recent COVID-19 infection. Our case examines the relationship between COVID-19 and autoimmunity with special attention to the pancreas.
