It represents an emergency, thus aiguee rapid recognition and prompt therapy are critical for survival even before the diagnosis is made. Hypoglycemic seizures or symptoms of dehydration are common manifestations seen in children.
Summary Epidemiology Exact prevalence of acute adrenal insufficiency is unknown. Adrenal destruction may occur in the absence of CPAI history and may be due to bilateral massive adrenal hemorrhage BMAH; see this term as seen in Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome see this term.

surrsnalienne Preventive strategies include dosage increase of steroid hormones during times of stress in those with CPIA. Peritonitis is often a differential diagnosis as well as other causes of adrenal destruction such as bilateral adrenalectomy, Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome see this termautoimmune adrenalitis, infectious adrenalitis and surrnealienne infiltration.
If untreated, shock and bilateral adrenal hemorrhage can rapidly lead to death. Prognosis varies depending on the etiologies, but is generally correlated with the rapidity of diagnosis and medical assistance.

Acute adrenal insufficiency AAI is a rare but severe condition caused by a sudden defective production of adrenal steroids cortisol and aldosterone.

Adrenal surrenalenne 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. Laboratory exams show signs of adrenal insufficiency aihue, 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 absolute and peripheral AAI.
Disease definition Acute adrenal insufficiency AAI is a rare but severe condition caused by a sudden defective production of adrenal steroids cortisol and aldosterone.
AAI may also result from corticotroph insufficiency, either isolated or more often resulting from complete anterior pituitary insufficiency. The onset is often sudden.
Etiology Steroid withdrawal is the most common cause of AAI in patients with chronic adrenal insufficiency. Only comments written in English can be processed. 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.
The mineralocorticoid insufficiency, when present, can be confirmed by low aldosterone levels and high plasma renin activity PRA. Steroid withdrawal is the most common cause of AAI in patients with chronic adrenal insufficiency. Administration of mg hydrocortisone i. Antibiotics, vasopressors, heparin, packed red blood cells, platelets, cryoprecipitates and fresh frozen plasma are also administered if needed.
Prognosis Prognosis varies depending on the etiologies, but is generally correlated with the rapidity of diagnosis and medical assistance. The disease may occur at surrrenalienne age. It can also be caused by tuberculosis, opportunistic mycoses and viral infections in immunocompromised patients and adrenal metastases.

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.
