Abstract:
It is estimated that the prevalence of primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison disease) is 1 in 10,000 people. There are multiple case reports and several studies that suggest a correlation between Addison disease and abnormalities of cardiac function. The pathophysiology of cardiac abnormalities in this condition is incompletely understood. This review explores what is currently known about the cardiac manifestations of Addison disease.
Key words:  Addison disease      Adrenal insufficiency      Cortisol      Congestive heart failure      Glucocorticoid replacement
