  • Addisons disease

    Addison disease (or Addison's disease) is adrenocortical insufficiency due to the destruction or dysfunction of the entire adrenal cortex. It affects glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid function. The onset of disease usually occurs when 90% or more of both adrenal cortices are dysfunctional or destroyed.

    Symptoms: Hyperpigmentation, vitiligo, which most often is seen in association with hyperpigmentation in idiopathic autoimmune Addison disease. It is due to the autoimmune destruction of melanocytes. Almost all patients complain of progressive weakness, fatigue, poor appetite, and weight loss. Prominent gastrointestinal symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and occasional diarrhoea. Glucocorticoid-responsive steatorrhea has been reported. Dizziness with orthostatic due to hypotension occasionally may lead to syncope.

    Meeting a medical practitioner: Physical examination in long-standing cases most often reveals increased pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes, with or without areas of vitiligo.The most common cause of Addison disease is idiopathic autoimmune adrenocortical insufficiency resulting from autoimmune atrophy, fibrosis, and lymphocytic infiltration of the adrenal cortex, usually with sparing of the adrenal medulla. This accounts for more than 80% of reported cases.
