CORAS, Natalia; SOMOCURCIO, José  and  AGUILAR, Cristian. Adrenal gland primary tuberculosis: report of two cases. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2013, vol.74, n.3, pp.221-226. ISSN 1025-5583.

Tuberculosis is highly prevalent and is still currently the leading cause of adrenal insufficiency in many areas of the world. Clinically this disease remains asymptomatic during early stages, but due to adrenal function loss symptoms become insidious and gradual, mostly unspecific. We report two cases of female patients with clinical symptoms of chronic bilateral primary adrenal insufficiency with active tuberculosis infection by histopathology.

Keywords : Adrenal glands; adrenal tuberculosis; adrenal insufficiency.
