Abstract

Primary adrenal insufficiency is a condition in which there is decreased production of glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid hormones from the adrenal cortex. Cardiovascular diseases that are associated with primary adrenal insufficiency include hypotension, arrhythmias, and heart failure. Heart block and symptomatic bradycardia, however, have not been reported to be associated with adrenal insufficiency. Herein, we are presenting a case of symptomatic heart block associated with primary adrenal insufficiency that resolved after the initiation of steroid treatment.
