201 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Hirsutism, Hypokalemia

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Abstract Although hirsutism is classically part of the clinical presentation of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), congenital adrenal hyperplasia and Cushing's syndrome ([] RESULTS: A 59-year-old man presented with nasal congestion and neck swelling and was noted to have hypokalemia, hypertension, and hyperglycemia.[] Cushing's disease. 1,2,4,5 It's important to note that Cushing's disease is a specific form of Cushing's syndrome, so the two terms are not interchangeable. 5 CUSHING'S SYNDROME[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia[] 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.[] We present a case of a testosterone-secreting oncocytic adrenocortical carcinoma in a 19-year-old female who presented with acne, hirsutism and irregular menses.[]

  • Cushing's Disease

    The course of the disease was fatal, the patient died due to severe hypokalemia.[] If Cushing's disease remains untreated it may be fatal.[] The clinical signs suggesting Cushing's disease, such as obesity, moon face, hirsutism, and facial plethora are already present on presentation.[]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    In addition to the CS development, biochemical results of the patient showed low cortisol, ACTH, testosterone, DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) levels, and hypokalemia[] Iatrogenic Cushing's disease (iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome) is the most common cause of cushingoid symptoms.[] […] increased gluconeogenesis (opposite insulin action) Bruisability loss of subcutaneous collagen matrix, skin peels off easilty (liddle’s sign) – susceptible to fungal infection Hirsutism[]

  • ACTH-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma

  • Adrenogenital Syndrome

    A 23-year-old Japanese woman had her male-like musculature, hirsutism, the absence of breast development and marked clitoromegaly.[] […] congenital adrenal hyperplasia that leads to a decrease in adrenal androgen synthesis and an increase in aldosterone, causing renal reabsorption of sodium, hypertension, and hypokalemia[] The right adrenal gland was significantly wider in the patients with Cushing's disease and AGS than in control subjects.[]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    […] obesity, moon face, acne, abdominal striae, hypertension, decreased carbohydrate tolerance, protein catabolism, psychiatric disturbances, and osteoporosis, amenorrhea, and hirsutism[] Mifepristone increases serum cortisol but blocks the effects of the corticosteroid and may cause hypokalemia.[] The short-term follow-up results in patients with Cushing* disease, Nelson syndrome and chromophobe adenoma are very encouraging.[]

  • Acquired Adrenogenital Syndrome

    Abstract Hirsutism is the term applied to a masculine pattern of hair growth.[] In children, the hypokalemia and hyperaldosteronism of Bartter's syndrome are distinguished from Conn's syndrome by the absence of hypertension.[] Disorders of the adrenal glands—adrenal cortex include Cushing's disease (excess cortisol production), adrenogenital syndrome, feminizing adrenal tumors (feminization of the[]

  • ACTH-Independent Cushing Syndrome

    ., obesity, hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance, hyperlipidemia, hirsutism, acne, and gonadal dysfunction). FULL TEXT[] Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome is ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone secretion due to small-cell lung carcinoma, associated with symptoms of hypertension, hypokalemia[] disease and Cushing syndrome.[]

  • Adrenal Cushing Syndrome

    He continues to take ativan for anxiety, lisinopril and amlodipine for hypertension, and kcl 10 meq twice daily for hypokalemia.[] KEYWORDS: Adrenal insufficiency; Adrenocortical adenoma; Cushing disease; Cushing syndrome[] […] and thinning of the extremities, a thickening at the base of neck called a buffalo hump, a rounding of the face, weakness of the proximal muscles, thinning of the skin, hirsutism[]
