The autoimmune tautology. The autoimmune tautology refers to the fact that autoimmune diseases share several clinical signs and symptoms, physiopathologic mechanisms, and genetic factors and this fact indicates that they have a common origin. Anaya JM. Arthritis Res Ther. 2010 Nov 9. (Also see: What is Autoimmunity?)
