Adrenal Glands

These glands are located just above the kidneys and produce numerous steroid and catecholamine (adrenaline-like) hormones. Adrenal disorders can be the result of insufficient steroid hormones (e.g. Addison's disease) or excess adrenal hormone release (e.g. Cushing's syndrome, Conn's syndrome, phaeochromocytoma).
