    The clinical course of eight boys and six girls with Addison's disease has been reviewed. Adrenal antibodies were found in five boys and five girls, and four children showed clinical evidence of other autoimmune disease (hypoparathyroidism (three); diabetes (one)). The presentation was insidious in 12 children but acute in two. On treatment, linear growth was normal and, with the exception of one girl with theca cell antibodies, pubertal development proceeded normally in the older patients.
