ALDAMA CABALLERO, Arnaldo; CENTURION MEDINA, Ingrid  and  FORNERON VIERA, Laura. Suprarrenal insufficiency in patient with respiratory difficulty and ulcers in lower members. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2019, vol.52, n.2, pp.59-64. ISSN 1816-8949.

Adrenal insufficiency is a serious condition that presents numerous clinical manifestations secondary to the depression of the hormonal production of said gland.

The causes are several and even depend on the regions and times. In Latin America, Paracoccidioides must be considered as a probable cause.

We present the case of a peasant man, admitted to the Hospital for Adrenal Insufficiency, with respiratory distress and ulcerous leg injuries due to paracoccidioidomycosis, which was also the cause of the respiratory and possibly adrenal disorder.

Keywords : Adrenal insufficiency; Addison's disease; paracoccidioidomycosis..
