Clinical description The disease may occur at any age. Aibue care resources for this disease Expert centres Diagnostic tests 0 Patient organisations 5 Orphan drug s 4. Etiology Steroid withdrawal is the most common cause of AAI in patients with chronic adrenal insufficiency.
Laboratory exams show signs of adrenal insufficiency hypoglycemia, hyponatremia and elevated natriuresis, hyperkaliemia, hemoconcentration, hypochloremic metabolic acidosis and functional renal failure confirmed by hypocortisolemia, increased ACTH, and an insufficient response to rapid ACTH stimulation testing that leads to the diagnosis of aogue and peripheral AAI.

Death is rare when the patients receive appropriate medical assistance. Administration insufvisance mg hydrocortisone i. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us. Diagnostic methods The clinical signs are nonspecific but the diagnosis of AAI is suspected if a patient presents with hypotonia or shock that responds poorly to catecholamines.
Acute adrenal insufficiency AAI is a rare but severe condition caused by a sudden defective production of adrenal steroids cortisol and aldosterone. If untreated, shock and bilateral adrenal hemorrhage can rapidly lead to death.

Prognosis Prognosis varies depending on the etiologies, but is generally correlated with the rapidity of diagnosis and medical assistance. Management and treatment Immediate insuffisqnce in an intensive care unit is necessary. In case of anterior pituitary insufficiency, ACTH is low. Immediate treatment in an intensive care unit is necessary.

It can also be caused by tuberculosis, opportunistic mycoses and viral infections in immunocompromised patients and adrenal metastases. Insiffisance Epidemiology Exact prevalence of acute adrenal insufficiency is unknown.
The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. Hypoglycemic seizures or symptoms of dehydration are common manifestations seen in children.
During this time cardiac monitoring is essential.
surrenalienen AAI may also result from corticotroph insufficiency, either isolated or more often resulting from complete anterior pituitary insufficiency. Patients and their families should also be educated on what to do during an adrenal crisis. It represents an emergency, thus the rapid recognition and prompt therapy are critical for survival even before the diagnosis is made.
The mineralocorticoid insufficiency, when present, can be confirmed by low aldosterone levels and high plasma renin activity PRA. Adrenal destruction may be associated with autoimmune adrenalitis Addison disease; see this termisolated or in the context of autoimmune polyendocrinopathy type 1, 2 or 4 see these terms.

Differential diagnosis Secondary adrenal insufficiency needs to be eliminated. The initial presentation may be limited to abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and fever. The disease may occur at any age. Disease definition Acute adrenal insufficiency AAI is a rare but severe condition imsuffisance by a sudden defective production of adrenal steroids cortisol and aldosterone.
Antibiotics, vasopressors, heparin, packed red blood cells, platelets, cryoprecipitates and fresh frozen plasma are also administered if needed. Peritonitis is often a differential diagnosis as well as other causes of adrenal destruction such as bilateral adrenalectomy, Surernalienne syndrome see this termautoimmune adrenalitis, infectious adrenalitis and tumour infiltration.

Preventive strategies include dosage increase of steroid hormones during times of stress inwuffisance those with CPIA. Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. The onset is often sudden. Adrenal destruction may occur in the absence of CPAI history and may be due to bilateral massive adrenal hemorrhage BMAH; see this surrenaliennne as seen in Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome see this term.
Secondary adrenal insufficiency needs to be eliminated. A precipitating illness severe infection, acute myocardial infarction,strokesurgery without adrenal support, pregnancy, any acute or chronic disease, or acute trauma are other potential causes of an acute adrenal crisis.
