Abstract

Addison's disease with bilateral adrenal enlargement can be due to infectious or non-infectious causes. The imaging characteristics of adrenal tuberculosis vary with the duration of Addison's disease and should be differentiated from other causes of bilateral adrenal enlargement. Imaging in tuberculous Addison's disease usually demonstrates bilateral enlarged adrenal glands with calcifications and peripheral enlargement although in later stages the adrenal gland becomes atrophic and calcified. We present a case report of a middleaged male with histopathologically proven tuberculosis with Addison's disease.
