Adrenal glands

The adrenal glands are two endocrine glands, usually located near the kidneys. Histologically we differentiate between adrenal cortex and adrenal medulla where the cortex can be further divided into 3 parts showing different secretion patterns and producing mineralocorticoides, glucocorticoides and androgene respectively. The cells of the adrenal medulla synthezise catecholamines like adrenalin and noradrenalin. The pathophysiology of the adrenal gland describes a great number of endocrine hyper- and hypofunctions concerning the different hormones produced. Furthermore tumors can be found as for example the pheochromocytoma that affects the medulla and can lead to severe hypertonic crisis due to the excessive secretion of adrenalin and noradrenalin.
