255 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Headache, Hypernatremia

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    Otolaryngologists frequently encounter patients with complaints of headaches.[] We studied a patient who presented with a global hypothalamic dysfunction including adipsic hypernatremia.[] 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).[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    Conn syndrome ( mineralcorticoid excess) is marked by high blood pressure which can result in headache and hypokalemia (low serum potassium, which can in turn produce muscle[] Six months after surgery, she showed signs of hypertension recurrence accompanied by hypokalemia (serum potassium: 2.9 mEq/l) and hypernatremia (serum sodium: 150 mEq/l).[] This was suggestive of primary adrenal disease as cortisol levels normally suppress to less than 50% of basal levels in pituitary driven Cushing’s disease.[]

  • Diabetes Insipidus

    She presented with visual disturbance and headache followed by thirst, nocturia and polyuria. A visual field defect was present.[] Hypernatremia was corrected by scheduled water intake with desmopressin administration.[] […] syndrome E24.0 Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease E24.1 Nelson's syndrome E24.2 Drug-induced Cushing's syndrome E24.3 Ectopic ACTH syndrome E24.4 Alcohol-induced pseudo-Cushing's[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    In the event of discontinuation of alcohol drinking, the patient exhibits anxiety, anger, sweating, nausea, headaches, limb tremor, in the most severe cases, hallucinations[] The symptoms of acute alcoholism are headache , tiredness, hangover, anxiety, and other physical signs.[] The immediate neurological problems that may result from a period of heavy drinking are trouble sleeping and headaches.[]

  • Pituitary Neoplasm

    The clinical presentation mainly depends on hormone-secreting effects, but a headache may often be the only symptom.[] […] poor peripheral vision) excessive thirst and frequent urination growth failure delayed or premature puberty nausea dry skin constipation fatigue low or high blood pressure hypernatremia[] A 52-year-old woman developed recurrent hypercortisolism 3 yr after successful surgical treatment of Cushing's disease.[]

  • Intracranial Hypertension

    Headache. 1992 Feb;32(2):84-94. Review. PubMed PMID: 1551793. Askmark H, Lundberg PO, Olsson S. Drug-related headache . Headache. 1989 Jul;29(7):441-4.[] In a recently published analysis of pooled data from three prospective clinical trials, continuous infusion of HTS correlated with serum hypernatremia and reduced ICH burden[] Associations A variety of conditions are known to be associated with IIH including: endocrine adrenal insufficiency Cushing disease hypoparathyroidism hypothyroidism excessive[]

  • Mineralocorticoid

    Eplerenone was well tolerated; headache was the most common adverse event for patients in any group.[] THE syndrome of hypertension, mild edema, hypernatremia and hypokalemic alkalosis associated with an adrenocortical adenoma secreting excessive amounts of aldosterone was[] The more severe mineralocorticoid manifestations in the ectopic ACTH syndrome compared to pituitary Cushing's disease have been attributed to hypersecretion of 11-deoxycorticosterone[]

  • Panhypopituitarism

    She had headache, vision disturbance, polyuria, polydipsia, hypernatremia, diabetes insipidus and a pituitary lesion with findings compatible with apoplexy.[] A 34-yr-old woman with primary APS presented with polyuria, polydipsia, hypernatremia and impaired vision.[] Also look for evidence of hormonal hypersecretion due to a large functioning adenoma, such as signs of Cushing disease, acromegaly, or galactorrhea. Kim SY.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    The patient experienced severe headaches due to acute adrenal insufficiency without changes in the size of the cyst.[] Its release will lead to hypernatremia and hypokalemia, once stimulated by ACTH, elevated potassium levels, and/or the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS).[] Most tumors causing Cushing’s disease are small, thus most Cushing’s disease patients retain sufficient ACTH production following surgery.[]

  • Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion

    Due to continuing symptoms of hyponatremia including headaches, nausea, vomiting, and paresthesias after reinitiation of fluid restriction and salt tablets, tolvaptan was[] An unrecognized complication is the development of severe hypernatremia as a result of strict fluid restriction and concomitant excessive free water excretion from prolonged[] […] syndrome ( E24.- ) Nelson's syndrome ( E24.1 ) overproduction of ACTH not associated with Cushing's disease ( E27.0 ) overproduction of pituitary ACTH ( E24.0 ) overproduction[]
