Answer (E) Up to 30% of cases of acquired vitiligo are associated with thyroid disease, especially Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. It also may occur with
pernicious anemia, diabetes, and other autoimmune disorders. Vitiligo has not been reported with AIDS. Addison’s disease, lymphoma, and biliary cirrhosis can be associated with hyperpigmentation.

And as said by XpaezX- Addison and PBC are also autoimmune but Hashimoto is more common
