Abstract: The autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy syndrome is characterized by the presence of chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis, adrenal insufficiency, and hypoparathyroidism. Almost all patients have skin or nail findings early in the course of the disease. Therefore, the dermatologist is in the unique position of being able to identify patients with this syndrome early in its course and to facilitate careful monitoring of potentially lethal complications.
