Adrenal gland related skin disorders commonly include hyperadrenocorticism and sex hormone disorders. Distinguishing these diseases may not always be easy and in some cases both conditions may co-exist as in some dogs with hyperadrenocorticism as there is adrenal hyperplasia that impacts not only glucocorticoid production but also sex hormone production. The two most common treatments for the medical management of these conditions are mitten and trilostane. Mitotane and trilostane may be effective in management of both conditions but in some situations one therapy may be more favorable to the other.
