135 Possible Causes for Conn Syndrome, Cortisol Increased

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    Abstract Two patients with Conn syndrome and one patient with Cushing syndrome underwent computed tomography (CT)-guided tumor ablation with a total of 5-11 mL of 50% acetic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These androgen secreting tumours frequently present in women with increased facial hair growth (hirsutism), irregular periods and infertility sometimes with masculinization[ensat.org] Very occasionally, a true adrenal cortical adenoma is associated with the clinical manifestations of Conn's syndrome, and can be shown to be excreting mineralocorticoids.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hypertrophy of the Adrenal Cortex

    Cortisol-producing adrenal tumors often cause fat redistribution, with increased fat in the trunk and decreased fat deposits in the arms and legs.[livestrong.com] Approximately 20% of Conn syndrome cases are secondary to adrenal hyperplasia.[radiopaedia.org] The term Conns syndrome was originally applied to adrenal adenomas producing aldosterone.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Adrenal Gland Disease

    Treatment for Conn's syndrome varies depending on its severity.[washendo.com] "One of the primary activities of cortisol is to increase available glucose to the nervous system by breaking down protein and fat to glucose in the liver," Engelman said.[livescience.com] Conn’s Syndrome Conn’s syndrome, also known as primary hyperaldosteronism, is a relatively uncommon condition in which the body produces excessive levels of the hormone, aldosterone[decorlando.com]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    From the 24-h urine collection sample, urine aldosterone and urine cortisol levels were greatly increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report the first case of adrenocortical carcinoma secreting cortisol (Cushing's syndrome) and aldosterone (Conn's syndrome) with extensive distant metastasis at[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] syndrome, Conn syndrome, virilization, and feminization.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

  • Adrenal Cushing Syndrome

    Additionally, some autoimmune disorders may have been suppressed by the increased cortisol levels and so may appear/reappear after normalization of cortisol levels.[saintjohnscancer.org] Conn Syndrome (Hyperaldosteronism). Conn syndrome is a rare health problem that occurs when the adrenal glands make too much aldosterone.[urologyhealth.org] Conn was the first to identify findings associated with excess aldosterone production. This constellation of findings is now known as Conn's syndrome.[uofmhealth.org]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

Annu Rev Med. 1996;47:443–61. 6. Aron DC, Findling JW, Tyrrell JB. Hypothalamus and pituitary.[aafp.org] Endocrine assessment documented increased levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 and GH; ACTH and cortisol values were within normal ranges.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    A marked increase in glucagon, cortisol and ADH with renal dysfunction (creatinine 5.0 mg/dl) were noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] syndromeコーン症候群〈原発性アルドステロン症〉 conventional insulin therapy従来型インスリン療法 corticotrophコルチコトロフ、副腎皮質刺激ホルモン(分泌)細胞 corticotropin副腎皮質刺激ホルモン、コルチコトロピン corticotropin-releasinghormone (CRH[tokyo-med.ac.jp] , and glucagon when insulin is absent, the balance is disrupted, leading to: (1) altered fat metabolism Þ increased ketone bodies Ý lipolysis – normally inhibited by insulin[d3jonline.tripod.com]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    Cortisol is a hormone that is release in response to stressful situations. Cortisol increases blood pressure and blood sugar and inhibits the immune system.[rarediseases.org] syndromeコーン症候群〈原発性アルドステロン症〉 conventional insulin therapy従来型インスリン療法 corticotrophコルチコトロフ、副腎皮質刺激ホルモン(分泌)細胞 corticotropin副腎皮質刺激ホルモン、コルチコトロピン corticotropin-releasinghormone (CRH[tokyo-med.ac.jp] Increased IGF-II/IGF-I ratio was suggestive of NICTH in light of the large pelvic tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    In the corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) test, ACTH and cortisol increased only by 28%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Differential diagnosis and management of Cushing's syndrome.
