Adrenocortical function in the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)

Academic Article


  • Adrenal insufficiency has recently been recognized as a complication of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), but recent work, much of it conducted by Ed Biglieri, MD, and colleagues at the General Clinical Research Center at San Francisco General Hospital and Medical Center, has revealed that less obvious abnormalities in adrenal function are common in patients with AIDS. He will review some of his findings with us today and will suggest ways of identifying patients requiring supplemental corticosteroid therapy over periods of stress or opportunistic infection.
