Fludrocortisone dose was stable throughout pregnancy but prednisolone dose was increased 1.5 times at third trimester.Sign and symptoms of neither hypo/hypercortisolism nor electrolyte imbalance were noted during pregnancy.

Maternal and fetal successful outcomes could be obtained with multidisciplinary management in cases which undergone bilateral adrenalectomy secondary to primary pigmented nodular disease (PPNAD).
