Two Cases of. Cushing's Syndrome tumour and bilateral hyperplasia

HPJ Pretorius, WM Politzer

Abstract


Two patients, one with Cushing's syndrome and one with Cushing's disease, are presented. In the first case the syndrome was caused by a tumour of the right suprarenal gland which was treated by unilateral adrenalectomy, and the second case was diagnosed as hyperplasia of the left suprarenal gland, eventually leading to removal of all cortical tissue. Subsequently the typical features of Nelson's syndrome developed.
