X-Complete the table of Examples of Autoimmune Diseases




Addison disease

Surface antigens on adrenal cells


Disease of cardiac muscle (i.e., the myocardium), resulting in loss of pumping efficiency (heart failure)

Diabetes mellitus (type 1)

Pancreatic islet cells, insulin, insulin receptors


Disease of the filtration apparatus of the kidney (renal corpuscle), resulting in fluid and electrolyte imbalance and possibly total kidney failure and death

Graves disease (type of hyperthyroidism)

TSH receptors on thyroid cells

Hemolytic anemia

Condition of low RBC count in the blood resulting from excessive destruction of mature RBCs (hemolysis)


Antigens in thyroid cells

Multiple sclerosis (MS)

Progressive degeneration of myelin sheaths, resulting in widespread impairment of nerve function (especially muscle control)

Myasthenia gravis

Antigens at neuromuscular junction

Pernicious anemia

Antigens on parietal cells, intrinsic factor

Reproductive infertility

Inability to produce offspring (in this case, resulting from destruction of gametes)

Rheumatic fever

Rheumatic heart disease; inflammatory cardiac damage (especially to the endocardium/valves)
