Primary adrenal insufficiency is a disorder of adrenal cortex characterized by deficiency of glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid. It has various causes which includes infective, autoimmune, neoplastic, congenital, iatrogenic and others. Autoimmune etiology is the commonest cause of adrenal insufficiency in developed country where as in developing country it is the infection which is the leading cause. Prompt diagnosis is necessary in this case as delay in initiation of treatment might cause fatal outcome. This is a cause of primary adrenal insufficiency in a young boy due to rare genetic cause.
