The origin of the isolated secondary adrenal insufficiency is unknown in most cases. An observation of a group of over 100 patients with secondary adrenal insufficiency and coexisting autoimmune abnormalities suggests that autoimmunity could be a frequent cause of idiopathic secondary failure, similarly as in Addison's disease. We studied 176 patients with idiopathic isolated secondary adrenal insufficiency. The methods included clinical examination and measurements of pituitary, adrenal… Expand
