20 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Hypertension, Urine 17 Ketosteroids Increased

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    Hyperaldosteronism is a cause of secondary hypertension and its diagnosis is usually benign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[pmj.bmj.com] Moreover, aldosterone-producing adrenocortical carcinomas without hypertension are exceedingly rare, with only two previously reported cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    He was diagnosed with ocular hypertension (OHT) and the management plan was for monitoring without treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms of Cushing's disease are similar to those seen in other causes of Cushing's syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org] Several studies have reported an association between idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and deficits of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    […] men without hypertension was 2.31 (95% CI, 1.96-2.72) ( Table 4 ).[dx.doi.org] Certain medical conditions such as binge eating disorder (BED), Cushing’s disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome can also lead to weight gain and obesity.[medbroadcast.com] […] and mortality risk. 2 Aetiology Obesity has multiple causes, the main factors are: Genetic causes Lifestyle (e.g. lack of exercise, poor diet) Eating disorders Endocrine diseases[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    CONCLUSION: Polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we present a case of ACTH-dependent pituitary macroadenoma (Cushing's disease) resulting in secondary amenorrhea mimicking polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Does central obesity reflect “Cushing's disease of the omentum”?

  • Morbid Obesity

    Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis can lead to portal hypertension, which can further manifest as upper gastrointestinal bleeding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] : hypothyroidism , Cushing syndrome , polycystic ovarian syndrome , panhypopituitarism , etc. congenital syndromes: Prader-Willi syndrome , fragile X syndrome , etc. specific[radiopaedia.org] Obesity can sometimes be traced to a medical cause, such as Prader-Willi syndrome, Cushing's syndrome, and other diseases and conditions.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Adrenogenital Syndrome

    Deficiency of 17-hydroxylase leads to deficiency of estrogens and androgens and to excess deoxycorticosterone, causing sexual infantilism and hypertension.[britannica.com] The right adrenal gland was significantly wider in the patients with Cushing's disease and AGS than in control subjects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other, rarer forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia result in varying degrees of hypertension or lack of sexual development, depending on the particular enzyme that is defective[britannica.com]

  • Pituitary Neoplasm

    Features of Cushing's disease, such as central obesity, moon facies, hypertension and development of a "buffalo hump", may be seen in ACTH-secreting tumors.[symptoma.com] A 52-year-old woman developed recurrent hypercortisolism 3 yr after successful surgical treatment of Cushing's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Selective venous sampling for ACTH in Cushing’s syndrome. Differentiation between Cushing’s disease and the ectopic ACTH syndrome. Ann. Intern. Med. 94 :647, 1981.[link.springer.com]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    RESULTS: Nineteen patients were cured of their hypertension postoperatively, whereas 13 patients had persistent diastolic hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The adrenal tissue of patients with Cushing's disease was predominantly yellow.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] secretion of mineralocorticoids or glucocorticoids as well Virilizing: serum dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), DHEA-sulfate (DHEA-S), androstenedione, testosterone urine 17-[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Virilization

    BACKGROUND/AIM: 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency (11betaOHD) is caused by CYP11B1 gene defects and leads to congenital adrenal hyperplasia associated with hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kansas City infoZine Headlines General: Thyroid disease, Cushing syndrome, Signs of virilization, Signs of insulin resistance e.g. acanthosis nigricans.[wordnik.com] Finding increased concentrations of adrenal androgens in the urine verifies adrenal virilism.[symptoma.com]

  • Ovarian Androblastoma

    Along with virilization, hypertecosis is also manifested by metabolic disorders (obesity, hyperglycemia) and hypertension.[en.medicine-guidebook.com] ., Cushing's disease, adrenal hyperplasia, pituitary adenoma, other causes of ovarian and adrenal androgen hypersecretion, intersexuality, medically induced androgenization[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Riggs BL Jr, Sprague RG, 1961 Association of Cushing’s syndrome and neoplastic disease: observations in 232 cases of Cushing’s syndrome and review of the literature.[hormones.gr]
