[Multi-organ specific autoimmunity in idiopathic adrenal insufficiency: autosensitization to steroid hormone-producing cells and antigens of the anterior pituitary gland (author's transl)].

Abstract

Multi-organ specific autosensitization to endocrine active cells, with particular reference to steroid hormone-producing (STH) tissues and cells of the anterior pituitary, has been studied in 23 patients with idiopathic Addison's disease (IAD). Adrenal antibodies were found in 57% of the patients and antibodies reacting with StH-cells (thecal and… (More)
