, a broad range of therapeutic modalities are being explored with different doses and applications of glucocorticoids that usually by far exceed the physiological daily cortisol production (8) , and therefore carry the risk of systemic side effects. A

showed normalisation of her serum electrolytes with a persistently elevated renin (372.8 mIU/L) during fludrocortisone treatment. Following COCP withdrawal, she had a basal cortisol of 344 nmol/L, rising to 452 nmol/L 60 min post-injection of 250 µg

Introduction Adrenal insufficiency (AI) is a rare endocrine disorder characterized by insufficient cortisol production, due to impaired ACTH or cortisol secretion, depicting secondary or primary AI (respectively SAI and PAI) ( 1 , 2 , 3

Introduction Autonomous cortisol secretion (ACS) is usually caused by adrenal adenomas or hyperplasia and is frequently diagnosed in patients with adrenal incidentalomas (AI). AI are adrenal masses discovered on imaging undertaken for other

have not found the evidence that mean cortisol levels differ between cyclic and acyclic females (21, 24) . However, this does not rule out the possibility that more fine-scale patterns of cortisol expression are disrupted in non-cycling elephants. Mean
