Abstract

A 10-year-old boy with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome developed adrenocortical insufficiency including typical clinical findings, low s-Na, high s-K, high p-ACTH (640 ng/l), low p-aldosterone (33-39 pmol/l), high p-renin (2300-4200 mIU/l) as well as an abnormal response to an ACTH-stimulation test. The adrenocortical insufficiency developed concomitantly with the occurrence of infectious mononucleosis diagnosed clinically and serologically. Adrenalitis caused by Epstein-Barr virus is suggested as the causative factor.
