Feedback:
Adrenocortical hyperfunction (Cushing's disease) may be a result of a primary adrenal tumor. Primary adrenocortical insufficiency is associated with destruction of the adrenal cortex by disorders such as tuberculosis, cancer, or hemorrhage. Secondary adrenocortical insufficiency is produced by inadequate secretion of corticotropin. Hyperaldosteronism is a rare disorder caused by adenoma or hyperplasia of the adrenal cortex cells that produce aldosterone.
