Exploring Inpatient Hospitalizations and Morbidity in Patients with Adrenal Insufficiency.

Patients with adrenal insufficiency (AI) (primary [PAI], secondary to pituitary disease [PIT] and congenital adrenal hyperplasia [CAH]) have reduced life expectancy; however, the underlying explanatio...

Management of glucocorticoid replacement in adrenal insufficiency shows notable heterogeneity - data from the EU-AIR.

Treatment for adrenal insufficiency (AI) remains suboptimal. Despite glucocorticoid replacement, patients with AI have reduced life expectancy and quality of life. This study aimed to describe the spe...

Articular cartilage calcification of the humeral head is highly prevalent and associated with osteoarthritis in the general population.

Articular cartilage calcification is considered a pathological albeit incompletely understood process which is known to be associated with osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. The goal of this study wa...

Delayed Diagnosis of Graves' Thyrotoxicoisis Presenting as Recurrent Adrenal Crisis in Primary Adrenal Insufficiency.

Adrenal crisis is a potential life threatening complication. The common causes of adrenal crisis are infections, surgical stress and abrupt cessation of steroid medications. Endocrine causes like Grav...

The Auricular Cartilage in 197 Secondary and Tertiary Rhinoplasties.

The purpose of this study was to describe and evaluate the efficacy of the use of auricular cartilage to treat aesthetic and functional deformities of patients who underwent secondary rhinoplasty o te...

Adrenal Function in Critical Illness

An appropriate hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis response is required to survive critical illness. Primary adrenal insufficiency, relative adrenal insufficiency, tissue resistance ...

Treatment of Adrenal Insufficiency in Children

The study will be conducted in a total of 24 subjects before their 6th birthday, requiring replacement therapy for adrenal insufficiency due to either CAH, primary adrenal failure or hypop...

National Education Programme for Patients With Chronic Adrenal Insufficiency

Even under established replacement therapy, patients with adrenal insufficiency still suffer from impaired quality of life and experience adrenal crises. Patient education is regarded as i...

Survey in Patients With Chronic Adrenal Insufficiency in Germany

The purpose of this survey is to assess patients with chronic primary or secondary adrenal failure regarding subjective health status, incidence and causes of adrenal crisis, hormone repla...

Evaluation of Etomidate on Adrenal Function in Trauma Patients

Trauma patients are at increased risk for adrenal function insufficiency. A commonly used agent for rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is known to decrease adrenal function. We want to determ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An X-linked recessive disorder characterized by the accumulation of saturated very long chain fatty acids in the LYSOSOMES of ADRENAL CORTEX and the white matter of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. This disease occurs almost exclusively in the males. Clinical features include the childhood onset of ATAXIA; NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HYPERPIGMENTATION; ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY; SEIZURES; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; and DEMENTIA. The slowly progressive adult form is called adrenomyeloneuropathy. The defective gene ABCD1 is located at Xq28, and encodes the adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS).

A condition caused by overwhelming BACTERIAL INFECTIONS or SEPTICEMIA, leading to HEMORRHAGE and NECROSIS of the ADRENAL GLAND. It is characterized by rapidly developing ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY; HYPOTENSION; and widespread cutaneous PURPURA. This syndrome may occur at any age but is more common in children.

Abnormal SEX DIFFERENTIATION caused by disorders of the GONADS or the ADRENAL GLANDS, such as CONGENITAL ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA and ADRENAL CORTEX NEOPLASMS. Due to abnormal steroid biosynthesis, clinical features include VIRILISM in females; FEMINIZATION in males; or precocious sexual development in children.

A type of CARTILAGE characterized by a homogenous amorphous matrix containing predominately TYPE II COLLAGEN and ground substance. Hyaline cartilage is found in ARTICULAR CARTILAGE; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; and the NASAL SEPTUM.
