Abstract
This review examines the links between autoimmunity and three common infectious diseases. These disorders are associated with a variety of clinical and serological autoimmune phenomena. In addition they might conceivably trigger autoimmune diseases themselves. Mechanisms that may be responsible for these links, including molecular mimicry, are explored. © 1991 Current Biology Ltd.
