The first successful classification The Sydney System that is still commonly used by medical professionals was first introduced by Misiewicz et al in Sydney in In fact, it was the first detailed classification after the discovery of Helicobacter pylori by Warren and Marshall in Using the new classification, distinction between atrophic and nonatrophic gastritis was revised, and the visual scale grading was incorporated.

Introduction: Polyglandular syndrome is characterized by the association of autoimmune, organ-specific, endocrine and non-endocrine diseases. Objective: To present a case of polyglandular syndrome type III b accompanied by pernicious anemia and autoimmune thyroiditis. Method: Report the clinical case of a young patient that developed progressive and disabling peripheral neuropathy framework, triggered by vitamin B12 deficiency.

Discussion: It was proven that atrophic gastritis with positive intrinsic anti-factor was responsible for the framework of pernicious anemia, which in turn dangerously reduced the serum levels of vitamin B12, leading to myelopathy. There was a progressive neurological improvement after parenteral cyanocobalamin replacement, keeping the patient at ambulatory, under maintenance therapy. Conclusion: The importance of suspecting on polyglandular syndrome in the presence of autoimmune frameworks is important, especially those involving diabetes, thyroiditis, atrophic gastritis, pernicious anemia, vitiligo, among others.

Polyglandular Syndrome Type III and Severe Peripheral Neuropathy: An Unusual Association

Dementia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency. Report of one case. Cyanocobalamin vitamin B12 deficiency can cause polyneuropathy, myelopathy, blindness, confusion, psychosis and dementia. Nonetheless, its deficiency as the sole cause of dementia is infrequent. We report a 59 years old man with a 6 months history of progressive loss of memory, disorientation, apathy, paranoid delusions, gait difficulties with falls, and urinary incontinence. He had suffered a similar episode 3 years before, with a complete remission. On examination there was frontal type dementia with Korsakoff syndrome, a decrease in propioception and ataxic gait.
