ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a three year old boy with isolated Micronodular Adrenocortical Disease (iMAD), presented with a history of weight gain and referred by his primary care physician. Facial acne, a humplike appearance to the nape of his neck and fullness to his supraclavicular region are among the positive findings. Results of histopathology and DNA studies showed no accumulation of pigment in either the left or right adrenal glands, consistent with MAD. After the adrenalectomy, the patient continues to do well.
