- Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is often reduced. PAI is a rare disease but recent data report an increasing prevalence. In addition to the common "​classical"​ causes of PAI like autoimmune, infectious, neoplastic and genetic disorders, other iatrogenic conditions - mostly pharmacological side effects (e. g., adrenal haemorrhage associated with anticoagulants,​ drugs affecting glucocorticoid synthesis, action or metabolism and some of the novel anti-cancer checkpoint inhibitors) are contributing factors to this phenomenon. Due to the rarity of the disease and often non-specific symptoms at least in the early stages, PAI is frequently not considered resulting in a delayed diagnosis. ​  ​(({{pubmed>​long:​30562824}})) ​+Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is often reduced.

 Acute adrenal crisis is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate treatment. Standard replacement therapy consists of multiple daily doses of hydrocortisone or cortisone acetate combined with fludrocortisone. Annual follow-up by an endocrinologist is recommended with the focus on optimization of replacement therapy and detection of new autoimmune diseases. ​   (({{pubmed>​long:​2433003}})) ​ Acute adrenal crisis is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate treatment.

-The most common causes of PAI are autoimmune adrenalitis (Addison'​s disease), infectious diseases, adrenalectomy,​ neoplasia, medications,​ and various rare genetic syndromes and inborn errors of metabolism that typically present in childhood although late-onset presentations are becoming increasingly recognized. ​  ​(({{pubmed>​long:​29956047}})) ​+The most common causes of PAI are autoimmune adrenalitis (Addison'​s disease), infectious diseases, adrenalectomy,​ neoplasia, medications,​ and various rare genetic syndromes and inborn errors of metabolism that typically present in childhood although late-onset presentations are becoming increasingly recognized. ​  ​(({{pubmed>​long:​29956047}})) ​Fady Hannah-Shmouni and Constantine A.
