Background: Current dogma states that in autoimmune AddisonÂ’s disease (AAD), all adrenocortical function eventually is lost. Yet growing evidence suggests that a subgroup of patients retain some self-production.Aim: To explore whether residual production of adrenocortical steroids is present in a subgroup of AAD patients.Material and methods: In an open non-randomized cross-sectional study, an interim of 22 AAD patients delive...

BackgroundResidual adrenocortical function (RAF) is present in one third of patients with autoimmune AddisonÂ’s disease (AAD), yet its clinical significance remains unknown.ObjectiveTo investigate if biomarker profiles of cardiovascular disease and inflammation are different in patients with AAD and RAF compared to patients without RAF and healthy controls.Material and methods<p...
