Abstract

Adrenal haemorrhage can result from traumatic as well as non traumatic causes and is often clinically silent. The present study was conducted to study the incidence of adrenal haemorrhage at autopsy. The study included 424 cases, of which adrenal haemorrhage was found in 78 cases. The male-female ratio was 2:1. The maximum number of cases was found in the third to fifth decades. Adrenal haemorrhage was mainly seen in deaths due to burns followed by hanging, poisoning and road traffic accident. Adrenal haemorrhage was bilateral in 80% cases and unilateral in the remaining cases (8% in the right-sided gland and 12% in the left-sided gland). Adrenal haemorrhage was mainly observed in cases with survival period less than an hour.
