Adrenal insufficiency (AI) is generally classified as primary (failure at the level of the adrenal gland), secondary (failure at the level of the pituitary), or tertiary (failure at the level of the hypothalamus). In practice, it is difficult and not clinically useful to attempt to differentiate hypothalamic from pituitary dysfunction, and these 2 problems are often grouped together as central AI (also somewhat confusingly called secondary AI).
