Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Acute adrenal insufficiency is rarely diagnosed in the pediatric age group. In this case report, an 11-year-old female with three previous admissions for dehydration was seen for dehydration and shock. Adrenal insufficiency was considered as a working diagnosis in the emergency department. Rapid intervention with intravenous hydrocortisone and fluid resuscitation resulted in a good outcome.
