Case Presentation: We report a patient with the triad of diabetic ketoacidosis, hypertriglyceridemia, and acute pancreatitis associated with computed tomography hypoperfusion complex and adrenal hyperdensity on abdominal imaging – an association not previously reported in diabetic ketoacidosis.
Discussion: Presence of Computed tomography hypoperfusion complex with hyperdense ‘Tubelight adrenals’ in a patient with diabetic ketoacidosis is associated with poor prognosis and thus serves to guide clinicians towards early and aggressive management.
