Abstract

Increasing evidence suggests that the adrenal gland can be hypoactive in stress-related states. This counterintuitive phenomenon has been observed after developmental, traumatic, and chronic stress, as well as in stress-related psychiatric disorders and functional somatic syndromes. The mechanisms of hypocortisolism, its contributions to disease vulnerability, and implications for intervention are discussed. © 2007
