Autoimmune.maybe: Diseases that are possibly autoimmune (but not confirmed or widely agreed)
Introduction: There are various diseases for which the cause is unclear, and which have been mentioned in research as possibly being an autoimmune disease. There are more than 100 different types of autoimmune disease and many have only been added recently (in fact, some may still be controversial). If a disease is "possibly autoimmune" it may show some of the characteristics typical of an autoimmune disease, such as no clear cause (i.e. no virus or bacteria), no strong genetic pattern (i.e. not a genetic disease), but exhibiting some genetic risk factors (i.e. like a polygenic disease). There are also various diseases where a small subset of the cases may be caused by an underlying autoimmune causality.
