Insuffisance surrénalienne et hypercalcémie: association fortuite [Adrenal insufficiency and hypercalcemia--an unusual presentation]
Publication types: Case Reports ; English Abstract ; Journal Article - Publication Status: ppublish
A 49 y.o. man was admitted for investigation of an intense fatigue associated with nausea, vomiting, weight loss and headache. Examination and work-up reveals a moderate hypercalcaemia and a panhypopituitarism attributed to a craniopharyngioma. Extensive work-up has excluded the most frequent causes of hypercalcaemia and we finally attributed this anomaly to the adrenal failure. In this article, we discuss the diagnostic approach, the etiology and physiopathology of this hypercalcemia and his association with endocrinological anomalies such as adrenal failure.
