Cushing’s Syndrome

  • Theodore J. Saclarides

Abstract

Cushing’s syndrome is manifested by a constellation of clinical features including truncal obesity, hirsutism, moon facies, purple striae, buffalo hump, hypertension, and glucose intolerance. Skin pigmentation can be seen in some patients with pituitary dependent Cushing’s disease when melanotropins are secreted in addition to ACTH.
