Abstract

In a patient who developed clinical signs of intracranial hypertension, bilateral papilledema and diplopia, in association with mild hypotension, hyponatremia and hyperkalemia, the hypothesis of Addison's disease was raised and confirmed. Substitutional therapy led to complete recovery. The present paper represents the first report of pseudotumor cerebri as the only clinical sign of an Addisonian crisis.
