Abstract

Addison disease is a rare but potentially fatal disorder of the adrenal glands. Its manifestations are often confused with many common disorders, and a high index of suspicion is required for the diagnosis. Optimum steroid replacement and patient education are vital for good quality of life and to prevent acute adrenal crisis in this condition.
