In health the adrenal glands are small and easily overlooked, but their function is vital. Appreciating the anatomy and physiology of the adrenal glands will help us to better understand the most common adrenal diseases and their potential clinical presentations.

There will be special focus during the day on the diagnosis and treatment of the most prevalent adrenal disease, hyperadrenocorticism and the course will also consider “incidentalomas”- increasingly recognised due to an ageing pet population and improvements in diagnostic imaging.

Topics to be covered include:

    • Hyperadrenocorticism/Cushing’s Disease: what’s new?
    • Hypoadrenocorticism/Addison’s Disease – in all its varied presentations
    • How to approach adrenal incidentalomas – Endocrine testing? Surgical excision? Serial imaging?
    • Hyperaldosteronism
    • Phaeochromocytomas – more common that you think
