Carpenter syndrome is a rare autoimmune disease that is associated with impaired function of several endocrine organs (diabetes mellitus, chronic adrenal insufficiency and/or autoimmune thyroiditis). A case of atypical course of autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 in a patient aged 47 years is described (the onset of the disease with the development of type 1 diabetes mellitus and the subsequent chronic adrenal insufficiency) against the background of concomitant pathology (peptic ulcer, arterial hypertension, adrenal incidentaloma).
