Abstract

Schmidt's syndrome is an autoimmune disease, which can present as a complication of idiopathic Addison's disease and chronic thyroiditis (Hashimoto's disease), and may cause acute adrenal insufficiency in the presence of stress such as surgery. In this study, we report a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) complicated by Schmidt's syndrome who did not develop any complications after surgery.
