Abstract

Adrenal insufficiency is a common and underdiagnosed disorder in critically ill patients. Bacterial sepsis and infection with the human immune deficiency virus are the most common etiologies. Adrenal insufficiency results from acquired defects within the hypothalamus, pituitary, or adrenal glands. Cytokines and other peptides released during systemic inflammation impair the function of the adrenal axis and are major causes of adrenal insufficiency during critical illness. The most common clinical finding suggestive of adrenal insufficiency is hypotension. Treatment with glucocorticoids may improve the outcome of these patients.
