Clinical Case 6.9

A 25-year-old nurse had attended the endocrine clinic for 4 years with autoimmune Addison's disease and hypothyroidism. She had usually attended annually but had brought forward her appointment, as she had not had a period for 6 months. Her menarche had been at 13 years of age and her periods had been regular with a cycle of 28 ± 4 days. She was not obese and she had taken her hydrocortisone, fludrocortisone and thyroxine replacement regularly. She had herself checked three negative pregnancy tests.
