    We report two cases of Addison's disease occurring in association with proven Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. Both were treated with modern chemotherapeutic agents and were shown to have developed normal adrenal cortical function after several years. We suggest that adrenal function should be tested after modern anti-tuberculous therapy of this disease.
