310 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Hypernatremia, Hypokalemia

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The presence of thyrotoxicosis and hypokalemia does not always indicate a diagnosis of TPP.[] Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia.[] Laboratory data revealed hypokalemia (2.2 mmol/L), elevated creatine kinase (7282 U/L), metabolic alkalosis and reduced urine potassium, albumin, and total protein.[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia.[] 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.[]

  • Corticotroph Pituitary Adenoma

  • Cushing's Disease

    Tw o also demonstrated personality changes, hypertension and hypokalemia, the last of these being rarely reported in patients with Cushing's disease.[] The symptoms of Cushing's disease are similar to those seen in other causes of Cushing's syndrome.[] The course of the disease was fatal, the patient died due to severe hypokalemia.[]

  • Iatrogenic Cushing's Disease

    The weakness in patients with CS is aggravated by associated hypokalemia which is due to increased mineralocorticoid activity.[] Iatrogenic Cushing's disease (iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome) is the most common cause of cushingoid symptoms.[] In addition to the CS development, biochemical results of the patient showed low cortisol, ACTH, testosterone, DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) levels, and hypokalemia[]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia.[] Review Topic QID: 104337 1 Metabolic acidosis, hypernatremia, hyperkalemia 2 Metabolic acidosis, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia 3 Metabolic acidosis, hypernatremia, hypokalemia[] Cushing's disease may also present with hypertension and hypokalaemia but both the aldosterone and renin levels are low.[]

  • Conn Syndrome

    Hypernatremia, hypervolemia and hypokalemia are common.[] […] a cause of primary hyperaldosteronism and is the result of an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) aldosterone secretion,supressed renin activity, hypernatremia, HTN hypokalemia[] disease Large nonfunctioning adrenal tumors ([]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

    […] also eliminates ketone bodies (2) insulin – turn off gluconeogenesis/glycogenolysis [K ] must be carefully monitored, since insulin causes K to enter cells – hyperkalemia Þ hypokalemia[] Disease, hypercalcemia, and diabetes mellitus.[] Aggressive potassium replacement early in the management has been shown to minimize the risk of hypokalemia.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Here, we present a case of a heart donor with severe electrolyte imbalance, specifically severe hypokalemia, and severe hypernatremia.[] 3 Care Plans Cushing’s Disease 6 Care Plans Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 (Juvenile Diabetes) 4 Care Plans Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 13 Care Plans Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) and[] […] hypomagnesemia t widened hypercalcemia t tall hyperkalemia hypomagnesemia t inverted hypokalemia shallow, flat u prominent hypokalemia[]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    […] following features of CS: skin thinning, severe hypercortisolemia (24-hour urinary free cortisol 10 times the upper limit of normal), ectopic secretion of ACTH, and severe hypokalemia[] Cortisol can also exhibit mineralocorticoid activity in high concentrations, worsening the hypertension and leading to hypokalemia (common in ectopic ACTH secretion) and hypernatremia[] 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[]
