Abstract A case of isolated, bilateral, adrenal tuberculosis is presented. A 25-year-old male was admitted to the hospital due to lumbar pain, fever, weight loss and anorexia. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography demonstrated bilateral adrenal enlargement. Laboratory investigations were remarkable for adrenal insufficiency. The Mantoux reaction was positive but there was no evidence of lung or urinary infection. CT-guided biopsy of the left adrenal gland was performed and established the diagnosis of adrenal tuberculosis. Copyright (c) 2006 S. Karger AG, Basel.
