Addison's disease is a chronic endocrine disorder in which the adrenal glands do not produce enough steroid hormones mostly both glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid. Most common causes of primary adrenal insufficiency are due to autoimmune adrenalitis in developed world, and tuberculosis in developing world. Here we present a rare case of primary adrenal insufficiency with addisonian pigmentation secondary to familial glucocorticoid deficiency.
