Adrenal tuberculosis in 13 patients with Addison's disease. CT findings



Adrenal tuberculosis in 13 patients with Addison's disease. CT findings



La Radiologia Medica 71(9): 606-610



A series of thirteen cases of adrenal tuberculosis with Addison's disease is presented. At the onset of disease, CT findings consisted of an enlargement of both glands, with peripheral enhancement after contrast medium was injected. The CT differential diagnosis among tubercular, metastatic and amyloidotic etiology was not possible. When the course of the illness was favourable, CT showed a generalized glandular atrophy with calcifications. In two fatal cases, the diagnosis could be made only at post-mortem examination.
