Bulantı ve kusmayla başvuran bir addison olgusu

Nadir görülen Addison hastalığı, sıklıkla nonspesifik semptomlar ile seyreder. Bir yıldır bulantı, halsizlik, son 3 aydır da bulantıya eşlik eden, gıda alımı ile ilişkisiz kusma ve kilo kaybı ile başvuran ve Addison hastalı ğı tanısı alan 58 yaşında kadın olgu sunulmuştur. Tanı gecikmesi veya yetersizliğinde yüksek morbidite ve mortaliteye sebep olan bu nedenle yüksek klinik şüphe gerektiren Addison hastalığı bulantı ve kusma yakı nmaları ile başvuran olgularda sebepler arasında akla gelmelidir.

A case of addison’s disease presented with nausea and vomiting

Addison’s disease usually progresses with non-specific symptoms. We reported a 58 year old woman with Addison’s disease, presented with one year history of nausea, fatigue and vomiting unrelated to food intake, and weight loss for last 3 months. In Addison’s disease, morbidity and mortality usually are due to failure or delay in making the diagnosis. Thus, diagnosing Addison’s disease requires a high degree of clinical suspicion in the differential diagnosis of nausea and vomiting.
