As no improvement was seen with the sodium deficit treatment, replacement fludrocortisone
(2x0.1 mg) was initiated on the 8th day of hyponatremia and on the 7th day of sodium deficit treatment replacement.
acetate, the less expensive choice, is given daily.
In newborns referred with salt wasting crisis, replacement treatment with fludrocortisone
and hydrocortisone may be given until differential diagnosis from congenital adrenal hyperplasia is made.1 When patient 2 and 3 were referred with salt wasting, they initially underwent hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone
treatment until the hormone tests results were obtained.
He was diagnosed to have primary adrenal insufficiency managed with hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone
was started due to hyponatremia and very high urine Na loss despite high Na supplementation at the age of 20 days.
, a synthetic mineralocorticoid, is an aldosterone receptor agonist.
[41,42] The multicentre placebo controlled APROCCHSS (Activated Protein C and Corticosteroids for Human Septic Shock) trial randomised 1 241 patients with septic shock to receive corticosteroids (50 mg hydrocortisone bolus every 6 hours intravenously, 50 [micro]g fludrocortisone
enterally daily) and/or activated drotrecogin alpha together with their respective placebos.
46XX karyotype, hypoplastic uterus on CT scan and elevated ACTH and 17-hydroxyprogesterone levels lead to the diagnosis of female pseudohermaphroditism due to congenital adrenal hyperplasia and patient was started on glucocorticoids and fludrocortisone
by endocrinologist and was also referred to plastic surgeon.
The mean duration of hyponatremia during the study period was 38 hours, and in terms of the specific-pharmacological treatment for these syndromes, only 1 patient was given fludrocortisone
, whereas no patient was treated with vasopressin receptor antagonists during the study period.
On the postoperative fourth day, hydrocortisone treatment was replaced by oral maintenance dose (10 mg/m2/day), and fludrocortisone
(0.1 mg/day) was added.
Furthermore, registration priority has been given to life saving medicines like Fludrocortisone
, D-Pencillamine, Hydrochlorothiazide and Nitrofurontion.
