MULLER, Alejandra et al. A rare cause of adrenal insufficiency. A case report. Rev. cient. cienc. salud [online]. 2021, vol.3, n.1, pp.71-74. ISSN 2664-2891.

We present a case of sarcoidosis that presented adrenal involvement. A 44-year- old man was diagnosed with pulmonary and lymph node sarcoidosis based on clinical, laboratory, and pathological findings. Three years later, he presented with generalized weakness, nausea, persistent hyponatraemia, arterial hypotension, weight loss, and skin hyperpigmentation. Endocrinologic evaluation confirms primary adrenal insufficiency, suggesting infiltration of sarcoidosis into the adrenal glands.

Keywords : sarcoidosis; hyponatremia; adrenal insufficiency; corticosteroids.
