PURPOSE. To present a case of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) associated with type I diabetes mellitus and celiac disease in a 3 year old female. METHODS. We studied a three-year old female who presented with clinical manifestation of VKH and type I Diabetes mellitus and ciliac disease. RESULTS. Patient was found to have hyperglycemia with type I diabetes mellitus. Duodenal mucosal biopsy specimen confirmed the diagnosis of celiac disease. Patient's ocular inflammation was treated by topical and systemic corticosteroid and immune-suppressive therapy. Her diabetes mellitus was controlled by insulin and her celiac disease was controlled by gluten-free diet. CONCLUSIONS. The association of VKH with two autoimmune diseases (celiac disease and type I diabetes mellitus) is rare. This case is, to our knowledge, the youngest patient reported with VKH.
