A case of chronic adrenocortical insufficiency with iatrogenic anasarca



A case of chronic adrenocortical insufficiency with iatrogenic anasarca



Advances in Therapy 17(2): 68-69



The decrease in active hormones that characterizes chronic adrenal insufficiency results in hypovolemia. In some patients, residual adrenal function, mineralocorticoid therapy, and concomitant heart or liver failure, or both, can paradoxically provoke edema. The case report that follows describes a patient with iatrogenically induced anasarca resulting from the unhappy confluence of usually appropriate therapy and coexisting medical conditions.
