Autoimmune diseases affecting multiple endocrine organs. Type I is characterized by childhood onset and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CANDIDIASIS, CHRONIC MUCOCUTANEOUS), while type II exhibits any combination of adrenal insufficiency (ADDISON'S DISEASE), lymphocytic thyroiditis (THYROIDITIS, AUTOIMMUNE;), HYPOPARATHYROIDISM; and gonadal failure. In both types organ-specific ANTIBODIES against a variety of ENDOCRINE GLANDS have been detected. The type II syndrome differs from type I in that it is associated with HLA-A1 and B8 haplotypes, onset is usually in adulthood, and candidiasis is not present.
An adrenal microsomal cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 21-hydroxylation of steroids in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP21 gene, converts progesterones to precursors of adrenal steroid hormones (CORTICOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE). Defects in CYP21 cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia (ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA, CONGENITAL).
MYCOBACTERIUM infections of the male reproductive tract (GENITALIA, MALE).
A synthetic peptide that is identical to the 24-amino acid segment at the N-terminal of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. ACTH (1-24), a segment similar in all species, contains the biological activity that stimulates production of CORTICOSTEROIDS in the ADRENAL CORTEX.
Infection of the ENDOCRINE GLANDS with species of MYCOBACTERIUM, most often MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS.
A 90-amino acid peptide derived from post-translational processing of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) in the PITUITARY GLAND and the HYPOTHALAMUS. It is the C-terminal fragment of POMC with lipid-mobilizing activities, such as LIPOLYSIS and steroidogenesis. Depending on the species and the tissue sites, beta-LPH may be further processed to yield active peptides including GAMMA-LIPOTROPIN; BETA-MSH; and ENDORPHINS.
Systematic and thorough inspection of the patient for physical signs of disease or abnormality.
Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.

Regression of cardiac abnormalities after replacement therapy in Addison's disease. (1/213)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate by echocardiography the cardiac structure and function in patients with primary adrenocortical insufficiency. DESIGN AND METHODS: Two-dimensionally guided M-mode echocardiograms and spectral Doppler studies were performed in seven consecutive patients with newly diagnosed autoimmune primary adrenal failure before and 4-8 months after an adequate regimen of steroid substitution. Echocardiographic parameters were also studied in ten healthy controls. RESULTS: In the cases with untreated Addison's disease, both left ventricular end-systolic and end-diastolic dimensions were significantly reduced in comparison with those in controls (P<0.01). Four patients had echocardiographic signs of mitral valve prolapse (MVP) at the anterior leaflet, with no evidence of mitral regurgitation by Doppler echocardiography. Systolic clicks characteristic of MVP were present on auscultation in two of these cases. Left ventricular chamber size normalized, i.e. significantly increased (P<0.01), and both echocardiographic and physical signs of MVP resolved after steroid substitution in all patients. All other echocardiographic indices were normal before and after treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with untreated Addison's disease have cardiac abnormalities which regress after steroid substitution. A valvular-ventricular disproportion due to the hypovolemic state could explain these findings.  (+info)

Clinical presentation of thyroid dysfunction and Addison's disease in young adults with type 1 diabetes. (2/213)

In a clinic population of 509 type 1 diabetic patients aged 16-45 years, 5.5% had received treatment for thyroid disorders (20 hypothyroid, three males; eight thyrotoxicosis, four males), and Addison's disease was present in four patients (0.8%, one male). In all patients, type 1 diabetes preceded the diagnosis of the other autoimmune disorder. The clinical presentation of hypothyroidism was usually insidious with few symptoms, although an increased frequency of hypoglycaemic symptoms and/or raised serum cholesterol levels often prompted thyroid function testing. In contrast, the patients with thyrotoxicosis had florid symptoms, weight loss (mean 8.12 kg), palpable goitres, increasing insulin requirements, and low cholesterol levels. Six patients did not achieve remission or had recurrent thyrotoxicosis after oral antithyroid treatment and required 131I or thyroid surgery. A family history of autoimmune disease was present in 25% of patients with thyroid disorders (seven thyrotoxic and one hypothyroid) and in three of the four patients with Addison's disease. In this population of young adult type 1 diabetic patients, appropriate tests for thyroid dysfunction and Addison's disease should be carried out if there is clinical suspicion and/or unexplained changes in diabetic metabolic control or serum cholesterol. Careful follow-up of patients with a family history of these conditions is recommended.  (+info)

Autoantibodies against recombinant human steroidogenic enzymes 21-hydroxylase, side-chain cleavage and 17alpha-hydroxylase in Addison's disease and autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type III. (3/213)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the frequency of autoantibodies (Ab) against 21 hydroxylase (21OH), side-chain cleavage (SCC) and 17alpha-hydroxylase (17OH), in Addison's disease (AD) and autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type III (APSIII). DESIGN AND METHODS: We used radiobinding assays and in vitro translated recombinant human (35)S-21OH, (35)S-SCC or (35)S-17OH and studied serum samples from 29 AD (18 idiopathic, 11 granulomatous) and 18 APSIII (autoimmune thyroid disease plus type 1 diabetes mellitus, without AD) patients. Results were compared with those of adrenocortical autoantibodies obtained with indirect immunofluorescence (ACA-IIF). RESULTS: ACA-IIF were detected in 15/18 (83%) idiopathic and in 1/11 (9%) granulomatous AD subjects. 21OHAb were found in 14/18 (78%) idiopathic and in the same (9%) granulomatous AD subject. A significant positive correlation was shown between ACA-IIF and 21OHAb levels (r(2)=0.56, P<0.02). The concordance rate between the two assays was 83% (24/29) in AD patients. SCCAb were found in 5/18 (28%) idiopathic (4 of whom were also positive for 21OHAb) and in the same (9%) granulomatous AD subject. 17OHAb were found in only 2/18 (11%) idiopathic and none of the granulomatous AD patients. Two APSIII patients were positive for ACA-IIF, but only one was positive for 21OHAb and SCCAb. 17OHAb were found in another two APSIII patients. CONCLUSIONS: Measurement of 21OHAb should be the first step in immune assessment of patients with AD and individuals at risk for adrenal autoimmunity, in addition to ACA-IIF. Due to their low prevalence in AD, measurement of SCCAb and 17OHAb should be indicated only for 21OHAb negative patients and/or for those with premature ovarian failure, regardless of ACA-IIF results.  (+info)

Brittle Addison's disease: a new variation on a familiar theme. (4/213)

Unstable and unpredictable disease control in diabetes or asthma, with frequent hospitalisations, is frequently referred to as 'brittle'. We describe two cases of Addison's disease with recurrent hospitalisations in hypo-adrenal crises. Both patients had significant psychosocial disruption, and failure to take hydrocortisone replacement therapy was admitted in one and biochemically proven in the other. We propose that 'brittle' Addison's disease in these cases was due to poor treatment compliance related to psychosocial factors. These features have particular similarities with the syndrome of brittle diabetes.  (+info)

Addison's disease in type 1 diabetes presenting with recurrent hypoglycaemia. (5/213)

Primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease) often develops insidiously. Although a rare disorder, it is more common in type 1 diabetes mellitus. A 19 year old male with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune hypothyroidism experienced recurrent severe hypoglycaemia over several months, despite a reduction in insulin dose, culminating in an adrenal crisis. Recurrent severe hypoglycaemia resolved after identification and treatment of the adrenocortical insufficiency. In type 1 diabetes, undiagnosed Addison's disease can influence glycaemic control and induce severe hypoglycaemia.  (+info)

High-resolution transcript map of the region spanning D12S1629 and D12S312 at chromosome 12q13: triple A syndrome-linked region. (6/213)

For those searching for human disease-causing genes, information on the position of genes with respect to genetic markers is essential. The physical map composed of ESTs and genetic markers provides the positional information of these markers as well as the starting point of gene identification in the form of genomic clones containing exons. To facilitate the effort of identification of genes in the region spanning D12S1629 and D12S312, we constructed a high-resolution transcript map with PAC/BAC/cosmid clones. The strategy for the construction of such a map involved utilization of STSs for the screening of the large insert bacterial chromosome libraries and a chromosome 12-specific cosmid library by hybridization. The contig was constructed based on the STS contents of the clones. The resulting high-resolution transcript map of the region between P273P14/SP6 and D12S312 spans 4.4 cM from 66.8 to 71.2 cM of the Genethon genetic map and represents approximately 2.4 Mb. It was composed of 81 BAC, 45 PAC, and 91 cosmid clones with a minimal tiling path consisting of 16 BAC and 4 PAC clones. These clones are being used to sequence this part of chromosome 12. We determined the order of 135 STSs including 74 genes and ESTs in the map. Among these, 115 STSs were unambiguously ordered, resulting in one ordered marker per 21 kb. The order of keratin type II locus genes was determined. This map would greatly enhance the positional cloning effort of the responsible genes for those diseases that are linked to this region, including male germ cell tumor as well as palmoplantar keratoderma, Bothnian-type, and triple A syndrome. This transcript map was localized at human chromosome 12q13.  (+info)

CTLA-4 in autoimmune diseases--a general susceptibility gene to autoimmunity? (7/213)

For most autoimmune disorders, the pattern of inheritance is very complex. The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) gene complex has been implicated as the major genetic component in the predisposition to these diseases but other genes are likely to be involved. Based on function and experimental data, the gene encoding cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA4) has been suggested as a candidate gene for conferring susceptibility to autoimmunity. In this review, we critically evaluate the evidence for pathogenetical involvement of CTLA-4 in the different autoimmune diseases with focus on the possible role of genetic variation of the CTLA4 locus.  (+info)

Premature ovarian failure. (8/213)

On average, the menopause occurs at the age of 50 years, with 1% of women continuing to menstruate beyond the age of 60 years and 1% whose menopause occurs before 40 years. Arbitrarily, a menopause before the age of 40 years is defined as 'premature'.  (+info)

Context: Despite lifelong steroid hormone replacement, there is excess morbidity and mortality associated with autoimmune Addisons disease. In health, adrenocortical cells undergo continuous self-renewal from a population of subcapsular progenitor cells, under the influence of ACTH, suggesting a therapeutic possibility. Objective: We aimed to determine whether tetracosactide (synthetic ACTH(1-24)) could revive adrenal steroidogenic function in autoimmune Addisons disease. Design, Setting, and Patients: Thirteen patients (aged 16-65 y) with established autoimmune Addisons disease for more than 1 year were recruited at the Newcastle University Clinical Research Facility. Intervention: The intervention included a 20-week study of regular sc tetracosactide (ACTH(1-24)) therapy. Main Outcome Measures: Serum and urine corticosteroids were measured during medication withdrawal at baseline and every 5 weeks during the study. Results: Serum cortisol levels remained less than 100 nmol/L in 11 of 13 ...
The cause of autoimmune Addison disease is complex and not completely understood. A combination of environmental and genetic factors plays a role in the disorder, and changes in multiple genes are thought to affect the risk of developing the condition.. The genes that have been associated with autoimmune Addison disease participate in the bodys immune response. The most commonly associated genes belong to a family of genes called the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex. The HLA complex helps the immune system distinguish the bodys own proteins from proteins made by foreign invaders (such as viruses and bacteria). Each HLA gene has many different normal variations, allowing each persons immune system to react to a wide range of foreign proteins. The most well-known risk factor for autoimmune Addison disease is a variant of the HLA-DRB1 gene called HLA-DRB1*04:04. This and other disease-associated HLA gene variants likely contribute to an inappropriate immune response that leads to autoimmune ...

Autoimmune Addisons disease (AAD) is a debilitating condition and affected patients rely on lifelong steroid replacement. Despite treatment, many patients have increased morbidity and mortality. The diseases rarity has precluded large scale genomic or cellular studies in humans, resulting in an incomplete picture of the pathophysiology of AAD. This thesis details my research on the pathophysiology and novel therapeutic approaches in AAD. I performed two candidate gene studies on susceptibility alleles that have been implicated in other autoimmune diseases to explore potential causal pathways of these genetic determinants in AAD. The common variant 307*Ser allele of CD226 gene was found to contribute to AAD susceptibility as part of autoimmune polyendocrinopathy type 2. Two genetic variants from a panel of rare and functionally defective variants in the sialic acid acetylesterase (SIAE) gene were identified but they were not significantly associated with AAD. I explored new therapeutic ...

Autoimmune Addisons Disease (AAD) is an endocrine and immunological disease of uncertain pathogenesis resulting from the immune systems destruction of the hormone producing cells of the adrenal cortex. The underlying molecular mechanisms are largely unknown, but it is commonly accepted that a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental impact is critical. In the present study, we identified multiple hypomethylated gene promoter regions in patients with isolated AAD using DNA isolated from CD4+ T cells. The identified differentially methylated regions were distributed evenly across the 10.5-kb-promoter regions covered by the array, and a substantial number localized to promoters of genes involved in immune regulation and autoimmunity. This study reveals a hypomethylated status in CD4+ T cells from AAD patients and indicates differential methylation of promoters of key genes involved in immune responses ...
BACKGROUND: Autoimmune Addisons disease (AAD) is a rare, highly heritable autoimmune endocrinopathy. It is possible that there may be some highly penetrant variants which confer disease susceptibility that have yet to be discovered. METHODS: DNA samples from 23 multiplex AAD pedigrees from the UK and Norway (50 cases, 67 controls) were genotyped on the Affymetrix SNP 6.0 array. Linkage analysis was performed using Merlin. EMMAX was used to carry out a genome-wide association analysis comparing the familial AAD cases to 2706 UK WTCCC controls. To explore some of the linkage findings further, a replication study was performed by genotyping 64 SNPs in two of the four linked regions (chromosomes 7 and 18), on the Sequenom iPlex platform in three European AAD case-control cohorts (1097 cases, 1117 controls). The data were analysed using a meta-analysis approach. RESULTS: In a parametric analysis, applying a rare dominant model, loci on chromosomes 7, 9 and 18 had LOD scores ,2.8. In a non-parametric ...

Adrenal insufficiency (Addison disease) can be classified as primary, which occurs when the adrenal gland itself is dysfunctional, or secondary, also called central adrenal insufficiency, which occurs when a lack of secretion of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) from the hypothalamus or of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from the pitui...
Certain variations in the HLA-DRB1 gene have been linked to an increased risk of developing an autoimmune disorder called autoimmune Addison disease. Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system malfunctions and attacks the bodys tissues and organs. In autoimmune Addison disease, the immune system attacks the adrenal glands, which are small hormone-producing glands located on top of each kidney. Loss of hormones produced by the adrenal glands leads to the features of the condition, which include extreme tiredness (fatigue), nausea, low blood pressure (hypotension), and abnormally dark areas of skin (hyperpigmentation), especially in regions that experience a lot of friction such as the armpits, elbows, and knuckles. A particular HLA-DRB1 gene variant called HLA-DRB1*04:04 is the most well-known risk factor for autoimmune Addison disease.. Normally, the immune system responds only to proteins made by foreign invaders, not to the bodys own proteins. In autoimmune Addison disease, however, ...

Thomas Addison (April 1793 - 29 June 1860) was a renowned 19th-century English physician and scientist. He is traditionally regarded as one of the great men of Guys Hospital in London. Among other pathologies, he discovered Addisons disease (a degenerative disease of the adrenal glands) and Addisonian anemia (pernicious anemia), a hematological disorder later found to be caused by failure to absorb vitamin B12. Thomas Addison was born in April 1793, but his exact birthdate is not known. He was born in Longbenton, near Newcastle upon Tyne, the son of Sarah and Joseph Addison, a grocer and flour dealer in Long Benton. He attended the local Thomas Rutter school and then went to the Royal Free Grammar School in Newcastle upon Tyne. He learned Latin so well that he made notes in Latin and spoke it fluently. Addisons father wanted him to become a lawyer, but he entered the University of Edinburgh Medical School in 1812 as a medical student. He became a member of the Royal Medical Society, which ...

Autoimmune Addisons disease (AAD) is a rare and debilitating disease in which an autoimmune attack progressively destroys the adrenal cortex. Untreated it is universally fatal and treated people are absolutely dependent upon steroid medications lifelong, with a consequent excess in morbidity and mortality. A key feature of the adrenal cortex is that its cells are responsive to changes in circulating adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) concentration. This study aims to regenerate adrenocortical steroidogenic cell function in patients with established autoimmune Addisons disease (AAD) by stimulating proliferation and differentiation of their progenitor cells, the adrenocortical stem cells (ACSCs) (1,2). Using daily subcutaneous ACTH, administered according to two different regimens over 20 weeks, we will investigate whether regeneration of adrenal steroidogenic function through revival of ACSC activity is a realistic possibility ...

Addison\s disease is a late onset disorder caused by the deterioration of the adrenal gland. Addison\s occurs in the domestic dog at approximately 0.1 percent, with some breeds showing a greater prevalence. Notably, the Bearded Collie, the West Highland White Terrier, the Standard Poodle, the Portuguese Water Dog, and the Leonberger are considered to have unacceptable rates of Addison\s disease. Breeders have noted a familial tendency of Addison\s disease suggesting a genetic basis to the disorder. Our laboratory has determined that Addison\s is highly heritable in Bearded Collies. Further, although Addison\s is not fully governed by a single locus in the Bearded Collie, it does appear to be regulated by a single gene of large effect. The specific objectives of this study are to develop a genetic marker associated with an Addison\s locus in the Bearded Collie; such a genetic marker will provide a useful tool to aid breeders in making health-based breeding decisions. The second objective is to
Addisons disease, or primary adrenal insufficiency, is distinguished from other types of adrenal insufficiency in that the primary problem comes from the inability of the adrenal glands to produce sufficient levels of cortisol, and at times, aldosterone. Primary adrenal insufficiency is usually not apparent until 90% of the adrenal cortex has been destroyed. The most common cause of Addisons disease is idiopathic adrenal insufficiency secondary to autoimmune destruction of the adrenal cortex. Symptoms include : chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, anorexia, wt loss, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Diffuse hyperpigmentation occurs secondary to a compensatory increase in ACTH and beta-lipotropin. Mineralocorticoids are usually deficient resulting in a reduction in urine sodium concentration (and can be accompanied by life threatening hyperkalemia). Laboratory investigation may thus show: hypercalcemia, hypoglycemia, hyperkalemia, and a metabolic acidosis.. Diagnosis involves an ACTH stimulation test ...
Addison disease cannot be cured but can be managed with medication. These medications replace the missing hormones to decrease symptoms. They can also help prevent an adrenal crisis. An adrenal crisis will need immediate medical attention to try to balance the hormones again. Regular blood tests are needed to monitor your response to medication. Wear a medical alert bracelet that states adrenal insufficiency or Addison disease. This will let others know of your condition if you are unable to communicate.. Cortisol helps the body deal with stress. Those with Addison disease need to take extra care during times of stress. Extra treatment may be needed during physical stress or recovery such as:. ...
The clinical picture of acute adrenal insufficiency may closely simulate that of acute abdominal inflammatory disease. The term pseudoperitonitis has been used to describe this syndrome.3 Therefore, a differential diagnosis between Addisonian crisis and an acute abdominal inflammation can sometimes be very difficult.3, 14. Surgical procedures in cases of severe adrenal insufficiency are likely to lead to fatal results.2, 8, 11 A careful examination for any manifestation of impending crisis is therefore indicated in every Addisonian patient with symptoms of acute abdominal disease. It is equally important in all persons with chronic abdominal pain for whom surgery is considered necessary ...
Introduction: Patients with primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison s disease) and patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) still tend to receive more glucococorticoids than the normal endogenous production in healthy subjects. CAH patients start glucocorticoid treatment usually with diagnosis in their early childhood, whereas Addison s patients have a later onset of their disease and start of their treatment.. Objective: To compare patients with Addison s disease and CAH in regard to their bone mineral density (BMD), the duration of glucocorticoid therapy and the impact of glucocorticoid pharmacogenetics.. Design, setting and participants: In a cross-sectional study patients from one university endocrine outpatient clinic were included (84 patients with Addison s disease, 42 patients with CAH). Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured using DXA scan. Blood samples were analysed for bone markers and 24 h urinary samples were analyzed for bone resorption markers.. Results: Patients with ...

Addisons disease is primary adrenocortical insufficiency from bilateral adrenal cortex destruction. Tuberculosis used to be the most frequent etiology but now is second to autoimmune disease atrophy. Long-term steroid therapy causes adrenal cortex atrophy from disuse, and if steroids are abruptly withdrawn, symptoms of adrenal failure may develop rapidly. This is now the most common cause of addisonian-type crisis. Less common etiologies of Addisons disease are infection, idiopathic hemorrhage, and replacement by metastatic carcinoma. The most frequent metastatic tumor is from the lung, and it is interesting that there often can be nearly complete replacement without any symptoms.. The salt-wasting forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia-due to congenital deficiency of certain enzymes necessary for adrenal cortex hormone synthesis-might also be included as a variant of Addisons disease.. Weakness and fatigability are early manifestations of Addisons disease, often preceded by infection or ...
Addisonian crisis is a serious life threatening condition caused when the adrenal glands stop producing cortisol hormone. Symptoms include weakness and debility, dizziness, low blood pressure and rapid heartbeats.
Addisons mom already had two older kids when she decided she was ready for another addition to the family. Mom and Dad tried for a little while with no luck, now being 37 she decided to consult with a specialist. Dr. Eva Littman, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. found that Mom had an extremely high FSH of 22.8, which typically means the ovarian reserve is low. Their first round of IVF had to be cancelled as the ovarian response from the medications was too low. The second cycle was a success and they were able to retrieve three eggs..

Epilepsy, delays. Addison is a petite and precious three-year-old girl who loves to be cuddled. When Addison was younger, she could walk independently and she had good fine motor skills. She could take small things out a bottle, turn the pages of a book, and take off her own socks. Addison loved to wave hello and goodbye, clap her hands, and blow kisses. Her nanny adored her and often took her to play on the playground. Addison could speak simple words, such as mom and sister and she could understand the adults instruction. She was described as cooperative, active, full of expression, and adored. Addison was sometimes mischievous and would occasionally lose her temper, as any 2-3 year-old would. She enjoyed the rocking horse and playing with balls.. In April of 2016 she started having seizures and was sent to the hospital for treatment. She does have a CT scan in her file which was normal, but once Addison came back she was like a different child. She had stiff limbs and couldnt walk or sit. ...

Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 (APS-1), also known as autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy/dysplasia (APECED), autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1, Whitaker syndrome, or candidiasis-hypoparathyroidism-Addisons disease syndrome, is a subtype of autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome (autoimmune polyglandular syndrome) in which multiple endocrine glands dysfunction as a result of autoimmunity. It is a genetic disorder inherited in autosomal recessive fashion due to a defect in the AIRE gene (autoimmune regulator), which is located on chromosome 21 and normally confers immune tolerance. Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 symptoms and signs include the following: Hypoparathyroidism Hypogonadism Vitiligo Alopecia Malabsorption Anemia Cataract Adrenal hyperplasia Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 is a condition caused in an autosomal recessive manner. Furthermore, it is due to a defect in AIRE gene (which helps to make a protein that is called the ...

The diagnosis of the adrenal insufficiency requires complex clinical, laboratory and imagistic investigations. The study group was represented by 59 cases of adrenal insufficiency hospitalized in the Clinic of Endocrinology Timisoara, Romania, during the period 2000 2010 (age=42.10±16.30 years; F/M ratio=43/16). The patients were divided in two groups: primary adrenal insufficiency (42.37%) and secondary adrenal insufficiency (57.63%). In the group of primary adrenal insufficiency, the autoimmune Addison s disease represented 84% cases while the pituitary tumors had the highest incidence (44.12%) between the causes of the secondary adrenal insufficiency followed by Sheehan s syndrome (29.41%). Forty-eight percent cases of autoimmune Addison s disease associated different autoimmune disorders, like: chronic autoimmune thyroiditis (66.67% cases), Graves disease (25% cases), gonadal failure, vitiligo, rheumatoid arthritis. Two patients with autoimmune Addison s disease presented subclinical ...

We describe a case of a 40-year-old woman who was admitted to the intensive care unit with a rapid onset of dyspnea and orthopnea. She presented progressive weakness, weight loss and secondary amenorrhea during last year, while intermittent fever was present for the last two months. Initial biochemical evaluation showed anemia, hyponatremia and increased C-reactive protein levels. Clinical and echocardiographic evaluation revealed cardiac tamponade, which was treated with pericardiocentesis. Pleural fluid samples were negative for malignancy, tuberculosis or bacterial infection. Hormonal and serologic evaluation led to the diagnosis of autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type 2 (including primary adrenal insufficiency and autoimmune thyroiditis), possibly coexisting with systemic lupus erythematosus. After symptomatic rheumatologic treatment followed by replacement therapy with hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone, the patient fully recovered. In patients with the combination of polyserositis, ...

Discussion: Autoimmune polyglandular syndromes are a heterogenous group of diseases that involve immune-mediated destruction of endocrine glands. Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type II (APS2) is characterized by autoimmune thyroid disease, adrenal insufficiency, and oftentimes type I diabetes mellitus. Although almost half of APS2 cases are familial, the majority are sporadic. Interestingly, although precipitation of adrenal insufficiency by initiation of thyroid supplementation is a known physiologic phenomenon, it is a rather uncommon presentation of primary AI, reported sparingly in the literature. The mechanism of thyroxin-induced AI is thought to be secondary to increased metabolic demand in addition to enhanced glucocorticoid clearance. Conclusions: A history of multiple endocrinopathies such as autoimmune thyroiditis, type I diabetes mellitus, vitiligo and POF should alert the clinician that the patient is at high-risk for adrenal insufficiency, given that this is the hallmark of the ...

A very rare case of congenital adrenocortical insufficiency accompanied with ventricular septal defect, is presented. Surgical treatment together with glucocorticoid replacement therapy was performed. The patient, a 4-month-old girl with congenital adrenocortical insufficiency, had been treated with a long-term adrenocortical hormones replacement. Surgical treatment for ventricular septal defect was applied in order to reduce the risk of heart failure. The administration dose of glucocorticoid was determined according to the body surface area and chronologic change of serum cortisol. Following the surgical treatment, and with adequate glucocorticoid replacement, the patient showed a good clinical outcome. In conclusion, we showed a beneficial treatment protocol with adequate glucocorticoid replacement in open heart surgery for a case of congenital adrenocortical insufficiency ...
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) results from autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing â cells and is characterisedby the presence of insulitis and â-cell autoantibodies. Up to one third of patients develop an autoimmune polyglandular syndrome. Fifteen to 30% of T1DM subjects have autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimotos or Graves disease), 5 to 10% are diagnosed with autoimmune gastritis and/or pernicious anaemia (AIG /PA ), 4 to 9% present with coeliac disease (CD), 0.5% have Addisons disease(AD ), and 2 to 10% show vitiligo. These diseases are characterised by the presence of autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase (for Hashimotos thyroiditis), TSH receptor (for Graves disease), parietal cell or intrinsic factor (for AIG /PA ), tissue transglutaminase (for CD), and 21-hydroxylase (for AD ). Early detection of antibodies and latent organ-specific dysfunction is advocated to alert physicians to take appropriate action in order to prevent full-blown disease. Hashimotos hypothyroidism may ...

Eight years prior to her present admission, a 61-year-old Japanese woman was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, slowly progressive insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and chronic thyroiditis; she had been treated with oral prednisolone (PSL). After she suddenly discontinued PSL, she newly developed systemic lupus erythematosus. A combination therapy of oral PSL and intravenous cyclophosphamide resulted in remission. She was finally diagnosed with autoimmune polyglandular syndrome (APS) type 3 (3A ,3B, 3D), complicated with four different autoimmune diseases. Since patients with type 3 APS may present many manifestations over a long period of time, they should be carefully monitored ...

Dysfunction within the endocrine system can lead to a variety of diseases with autoimmune attack against individual components being some of the most common. Endocrine autoimmunity encompasses a spectrum of disorders including, e.g., common disorders such as type 1 diabetes, Graves disease, Hashimotos thyroiditis, and rarer disorders including Addisons disease and the autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes type 1 (APS 1) and type 2 (APS 2) (see Table 1.6.1). Autoimmune attack within each of these diseases although aimed at different endocrine organs is caused by a breakdown in the immune systems ability to distinguish between self and nonself antigens, leading to an immune response targeted at self tissues. Investigating the mechanisms behind this breakdown is vital to understand what has gone wrong and to determine the pathways against which therapeutics can be targeted. Before discussing how self-tolerance fails, we first have to understand how the immune system achieves self-tolerance. ...

The back of the head is known as the occiput. The greater and lesser occipital nerves cover most of the sensation over the back of the head. Sometimes, the occipital nerve can be irritated from trauma or chronic pain, and will become inflamed as a result of entrapment as the nerve penetrates the soft tissue at the back of the head. They can produce tenderness and headache at the base of the head. In an occipital nerve block, a local anesthestic (numbing medicine) and a corticosteroid (an anti-inflammatory medicine) are injected near these nerves, which help temporarily numb pain and can reduce inflammation. This injection can be used to diagnose or treat the pain.. ...

Corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation test: If the patient tests positive to the ACTH test, a corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation test is conducted to determine the cause of adrenal insufficiency. The patients cortisol levels are measured in the urine and blood before the test. Then, a man-made CRH is injected intravenously into the patient. Cortisol levels in the blood and urine are then measured 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes after the injection. Patients with primary adrenal insufficiency have high levels of ACTH but do not produce cortisol. Patients with secondary adrenal insufficiency have will have very low cortisol levels in response to the injection and absent or delayed ACTH responses. Absent ACTH response indicate that the pituitary gland is causing the disease. A delayed ACTH response indicates that the hypothalamus (part of the brain that controls the release of hormones from the pituitary gland) is the cause ...

Doctors help you with trusted information about Low Sodium in Addisons Disease: Dr. Raff on adrenal insufficiency hyponatremia: One cause of adrenal insufficiency, addisons disease, is an auto-immune disorder. The immune system mistakenly makes antibodies targeting one or more proteins in the adrenal cortex, and winds up destroying the adrenal cortex, so that the adrenals can no longer make cortisol, or other hormones. As is true for most auto-immune disorders, a tendency to develop addisons can run in families.
These clinical signs can vary in severity, and many owners report that the problems seem to wax and wane, sometimes seeming to resolve on their own and sometimes responding temporarily to very nonspecific treatment. Because pets with Addisons disease have a reduced ability to handle stress, the emotional stress of visiting a boarding kennel or the excitement of a family gathering can cause clinical signs to resurface.. Diagnosis of Addisons disease can be complicated; generally more than one type of test is needed to confirm a diagnosis.. What Is Desoxycorticosterone Pivalate (DOCP)? Some pets with Addisons disease arrive at the veterinary office in a state of life-threatening crisis. Low blood pressure, shock, dehydration, impaired heart function, and other complications of the disease can be fatal if not treated immediately and aggressively. In these cases, hospitalization for emergency intravenous fluid therapy and other stabilization is necessary.. In other cases, the clinical signs of ...

In the UK Fludrocortisone acetate is used which has both mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid activity. This is given in tablet form daily. Initially salt may also need to be added to the food to stabilise the animal.. Long term monitoring may be required in the form of blood tests to measure the control of the disease. These blood tests are specifically concerned with monitoring electrolytes e.g. sodium and potassium. It may also be a wise precaution to keep some steroid tablets e.g. prednisolone for times of increased stress.. Generally dogs who are on treatment for Addisons do extremely well. There is little indication to change diet or activity levels so dogs can go on to lead normal happy lives.. PS.
