Answer

Late-onset hypoparathyroidism can be seen as a part of a complex autoimmune disorder involving ovarian failure and adrenal failure. Mucocutaneous candidiasis, alopecia, vitiligo, and pernicious anemia are associated with this disorder, which is referred to as polyglandular autoimmune disease (PGA I).
