79 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Enlarged Sella

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    OBJECT: The empty sella syndrome (ESS) is well documented in adults, and although the same phenomenon of herniation of the arachnoid space into the enlarged sella turcica[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This study was performed to determine the effect of ESS on immediate and long-term biochemical outcome after pituitary surgery for Cushing's disease (CD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] disease; (b) marked hirsutism; (c) slight hyperprolactinemia or augmented PRL response after metoclopramide; (d) elevated DHEAS levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • ACTH-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma

    Initially confined to the sella turcica, but may enlarge and become invasive after bilateral adrenalectomy (Nelson's syndrome).[patient.info] Cushing’s Disease vs.[mskcc.org] Since then, others 3 , 4 have reported similar cases, some of which showed enlargement of the sella turcica before adrenalectomy.[nejm.org]

  • Pituitary Neoplasm

    A pituitary tumor tends to produce an enlarged sella (sella turcica). Alternatively, an enlarged sella may represent empty sella syndrome.[merckmanuals.com] Abstract A 52-year-old woman developed recurrent hypercortisolism 3 yr after successful surgical treatment of Cushing's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Stage III: macroadenomas with enlargement and invasion of the floor or suprasellar extension. Stage IV is destruction of the sella.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    Grade II: Enlarged sella with an intact floor Grade III: Localized erosion or destruction of the sellar floor Grade IV: Diffusely eroded or destroyed floor Treatment Overview[en.wikibooks.org] However, it is very rare that acromegaly shows subclinical Cushing's disease (SCD) beyond the lineage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initially confined to the sella turcica, but may enlarge and become invasive after bilateral adrenalectomy (Nelson's syndrome).[patient.info]

  • Chromophobe Adenoma

    Abstract A 50-year-old man with bitemporal hemianopsia and an enlarged sella turcica was found to have hyperthyroidism with elevated serum thyrotropin levels (17 mμg per milliliter[nejm.org] Abstract A 76-year-old man with pigmentation and Cushing's disease is described, who was found to have a large chromophobe adenoma of the pituitary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Since then, others 3 , 4 have reported similar cases, some of which showed enlargement of the sella turcica before adrenalectomy.[nejm.org]

  • Basophil Adenoma

    Initially confined to the sella turcica, but may enlarge and become invasive after bilateral adrenalectomy (Nelson's syndrome).[patient.info] Cushing's disease seems to be due to defective hypothalamic regulation of ACTH release from the pituitary gland.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Stage III: macroadenomas with enlargement and invasion of the floor or suprasellar extension. Stage IV is destruction of the sella.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pituitary Cyst

    CT typically shows an enlarged sella turcica containing a cystic mass, which can be either hypodense or isodense with brain.[pituitaryadenomas.com] The coverage includes acromegaly, Cushing’s disease, Rathke cleft cysts, prolactinomas, incidentalomas, nonsecreting adenomas, other lesions of the sellar area, hypophysitis[books.google.de] My sella is also enlarged, but I think its just that way since this cyst has been there since birth.[mdjunction.com]

  • Eosinophilic Pituitary Adenoma

    Initially confined to the sella turcica, but may enlarge and become invasive after bilateral adrenalectomy (Nelson's syndrome).[patient.info] Pituitary oncocytoma presenting as Cushing's disease.[ijem.in] Stage III: macroadenomas with enlargement and invasion of the floor or suprasellar extension. Stage IV is destruction of the sella.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    Nel·son syn·drome ( nel'sŏn ), a syndrome of hyperpigmentation, third cranial nerve damage, and enlarging sella turcica caused by pituitary adenomas presumably present before[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] The short-term follow-up results in patients with Cushing* disease, Nelson syndrome and chromophobe adenoma are very encouraging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Clinical management of persistent adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) excess in Nelson syndrome (NS) and Cushing disease (CD) remains a challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Granulomatous Giant-Cell Hypophysitis

    MRI showed a significant enlargement in adenohypophysis. Transsphenoidal biopsy of sella was done for the diagnosis.[endocrine-abstracts.org] Disease, hypercalcemia, and diabetes mellitus.[books.google.com] […] turcica Pituitary dwarfism with small sella turcica Pituitary gland enlarged Pituitary hemorrhage Pituitary infarction Posterior pituitary disorder Primary hypothalamic insufficiency[icd9data.com]
