Question:

From Comox, British Columbia, Canada:

My 12 year old son, diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year and a half ago, was recently diagnosed with chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis. His dermatologist and others he has been in touch with have not heard of a child having this. Have you seen a relationship between diabetes and chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis?

Answer:

It has been reported in association with dermatomyositis and with autoantibodies to collagen. So, although it has not been recorded together with type 1 diabetes, there could be a link in terms of autoimmunity rather like there is with the various components of the Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome Type II.
