Abstract

Withdrawal of steroid medications from patients who have been receiving them for management of chronic disease carries the risk of certain serious complications. An understanding of adrenal physiology, coupled with a rational plan for evaluating the individual patient, when necessary, and for protecting against certain stressful situations, should obviate the occurrence of acute adrenal insufficiency.
