The projected prevalence of Cushing's syndrome (CS) inclusive of subclinical cases in the adult population ranges from 0.2--2% and it may no longer be considered as an orphan disease (2--3 cases/million/year). The recognition of CS by physicians is important for early diagnosis and treatment....
- DIAGNOSTIC TESTS FOR MILD CUSHING'S SYNDROME. // Ethnicity & Disease;Summer2009 Supplement 3, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p54
Cushings syndrome is a rare disorder which occurs when there is an overproduction of the hormone cortisol from the adrenal glands. One cause of this syndrome is Cushings disease which is a benign tumor located in the pituitary gland. The tumor produces excess Adrenocortocotropic Hormone (ACTH)...

- Measurement of Plasma Cortisol in the Diagnosis of Cushing's Syndrome. Sawin, Clark T. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Mar68, Vol. 68 Issue 3, p624
Provides information on a study which used the measurement of plasma cortisol in the diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome. Methods for estimating plasma cortisol; Effect of a corticotropin simulation test on the diagnosis of the syndrome; Diurnal variation of plasma cortisol.
- Silent ACTHoma: A subclinical presentation of Cushing's disease in a 79 year old male. Malviya, Meenal; Kumar, Navneet; Ahmad, Naseer // International Journal of Collaborative Research on Internal Medi;Aug2013, Vol. 5 Issue 8, p575
Pituitary adenomas are mostly benign tumors which may be clinically functioning or nonfunctioning. ACTH secreting tumors causing Cushing's disease are detected in 0.7 to 2.4 per million individuals per year. Most of the cases reported on such ACTHomas are microadenomas (<10mm) and very few...
- Pituitary adenoma with gangliocytoma: Report of two cases. DANQI CHEN; JIAN XU; PING ZHONG; XIANG HUANG; MING XU // Oncology Letters;2014, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p781
Worldwide, cases of pituitary adenoma with gangliocytoma are rarely reported. The current study reports the cases of two 47-year-old females who presented with masses in the sellar region following a general examination and radiological imaging. The two patients underwent sellar region tumor...
- Late-Night Salivary Cortisol for the Diagnosis of Cushing Syndrome: A Meta-Analysis. Ty Carroll; James Findling // Endocrine Practice;May2009, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p335
Objective: To report a meta-analysis of late-night salivary cortisol testing for the diagnosis of Cushing syndrome.Methods: MEDLINE and EMBASE computer databases were searched to identify relevant articles published between January 1950 and December 2007. The search strategy used the following...

- THE 10:00-11:00 PM URINE CORTISOL/CREATININE RATIO. AN ALTERNATIVE TO LATE-NIGHT SALIVARY CORTISOL IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF CUSHING'S SYNDROME. BRUNO, OSCAR D.; ROSSI, MARÍA A.; JUÁREZ-ALLEN, LEA; SERRA, HÉCTOR A.; ALBIERO, MARÍA C. // Medicina (Buenos Aires);nov/dic2015, Vol. 75 Issue 6, p373
The aim of this study was to investigate interchangeability of two tests to diagnose Cushing's syndrome. We compared 10:00-11:00 PM urinary free cortisol/creatinine ratio (UFC/Cr) with late night 11:00 PM salivary cortisol (LNSC) in normal and obese controls vs. patients with Cushing's syndrome....
