When a person's body attacks its own cells or organs because it can not identify these as part of the body, he is said to have an autoimmune disorder. Some of these disorders include lupus, arthritis, Graves' disease (thyroid disorder), scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, autoimmune thrombocytopenia purpura and many other disorders. In all of these, there is an abnormal immune response to various stimuli which cause the conditions, and in some of these, the resulting signs and symptoms are the first key to helping doctors to identify these disorders for treatment.
