Addison's Disease

Scope and Content

Typescript reports on patients with Addison's disease seen by Wilkinson as part of the research on behalf of the Therapeutic Trials Committee. Many of these reports are heavily annotated and have copies of the patient's charts attached, which record their condition during their hospital stay in addition to the administration of either Eucortone (Allen & Hanburys Ltd.) or Cortin (Organon Laboratories). The reports give details such as history of the condition, previous medical condition, family history, examination, test results, and where applicable an autopsy report.
