On the Constitutional and Local Effects of Disease of the Supra-Renal Capsules. By Thomas Addison, M.D., Senior Physician to Guy s Hospital.?London, 1856. pp. 39. Plates. Dr. Addison, the distinguished Senior Physician of Guy's Hospital, rather more than a year ago, laid before the medical profession a monograph, in which he endeavoured to prove that a peculiar bronzed condition of the skin, accompanied by a remarkable and fatal form of cachexia, is characteristic of disease of the supra-renal… Expand
Treatment of Addison's disease.

TLDR
Although there is still much to be learned of the normal and pathological physiology of the adrenal glands, from the practical viewpoint of therapy their destruction or removal no longer presents a danger to life or even to normal health. Expand
The Evolution of the Treatment of Addisonian Anaemia*
TLDR
Addison's most clear description-though submerged in his classical monograph on suprarenal disease, and consequently open to the criticism that the author was confusing two diseases-is nevertheless far superior to that given by Combe (1824), whose patient had, indeed, a severe anaemia, but with no convincing features suggestive of Addisonian anaemia. Expand
ACUTE INSUFFICIENCY OF THE SUPRARENALS.
TLDR
It is suggested that this state of affairs is the result of the conservatism of the American, German, English and Italian clinicians contrasted with the somewhat more unstable, fanciful attitude of their French brethren. Expand
Evolution of Modern Medicine: Pernicious Anemia, 1822-1929
TLDR
An account of the work carried out during that period in defining and investigating the condition and of the investigations of Castle and his colleagues, which mark the beginning of the present understanding of the disease. Expand
CLINICAL USE OF EXTRACT OF THE ADRENAL CORTEX: REPORT ON THIRTY-FOUR CASES OF ADDISON'S DISEASE STUDIED BETWEEN 1930 AND 1937, WITH A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE
TLDR
The discovery of Oliver and Schafer in 1895 paved the way for the isolation and chemical identification of epinephrine by Abel and Takamine a few years later, and the majority of subsequent investigations have dealt with the functional activity of the medulla. Expand
SENSORY CHANGES IN THE SUBACUTE COMBINED DEGENERATION OF PERNICIOUS ANEMIA
TLDR
The development of knowledge of sensory phenomena associated with pernicious anemia is summarized and the sensory changes encountered in forty-one cases of pernoxic anemia studied in the Elliott Memorial Hospital of the University of Minnesota and in the university service of the Minneapolis General Hospital are summarized. Expand
The conquest of Addison's disease.
TLDR
This review underscores the historical themes in endocrine diseases: discovery of the glands, identification of their hormonal products, use of the hormones for therapy, and biosynthesis for pharmacologic applications. Expand
A CLINICAL CORRELATION BETWEEN ENCEPHALOPATHY AND PAPILLOEDEMA IN ADDISON'S DISEASE
  • A. Jefferson
  • Medicine
  • Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry
  • 1956
TLDR
An account of a third, very similar, case is provided and gross cerebral oedema is reported in two other patients with adrenal insufficiency, one of which had early papilloedema, and the adrenal failure was secondary to a small chromophobe adenoma of the pituitary gland. Expand
Metastases to the adrenal glands and the development of Addison's disease
TLDR
Since adrenal insufficiency may develop abruptly in this group of patients, it is suggested that prophylactic maintenance glucocorticoid therapy be initiated as soon as the diagnosis of adrenal metastases is made. Expand
ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY RESULTING FROM PARTIAL OR TOTAL ATROPHY OF THE ADRENAL GLANDS: EARLY CLINICAL RECOGNITION
TLDR
Patients suffering from Addison's disease receive an array of diagnoses, some of which are erroneous but all of which detract from adequate study of this disease. Expand
