559 Possible Causes for Cushing's Disease, Hypokalemia

  • Chronic Alcoholism

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[cushingsconnection.com] A 59-year-old man presented with nasal congestion and neck swelling and was noted to have hypokalemia, hypertension, and hyperglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • ACTH-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma

    Depressivity Depression 0000716 Diabetes mellitus 0000819 Fatigue Tired Tiredness [ more ] 0012378 Generalized hirsutism Excessive hairiness over body 0002230 Hypertension 0000822 Hypokalemia[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Cushing’s Disease vs.[mskcc.org] […] hyperparathyroidism上皮小体機能亢進[症] hyperplasia過形成、増殖、増生、肥厚 hyperuricemia高尿酸血[症] hypocalcemia低カルシウム血[症] hypoglycemia低血糖[症] hypoglycemic attack低血糖発作 hypoglycemic coma低血糖[性]昏睡 hypokalemia[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • 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.[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] […] beta-estradiol (serum, only in men and postmenopausal women) Mineralocorticoid excess potassium (serum) aldosterone/renin ratio (only in patients with arterial hypertension and/or hypokalemia[ensat.org]

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If Cushing's disease remains untreated it may be fatal.[symptoma.com] Ectopic ACTH secretion was initially suspected on the basis of very high cortisoluria and ACTH concentrations, severe hypokalemia, a lung hypermetabolic lesion and a normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    Mifepristone increases serum cortisol but blocks the effects of the corticosteroid and may cause hypokalemia.[merckmanuals.com] The short-term follow-up results in patients with Cushing* disease, Nelson syndrome and chromophobe adenoma are very encouraging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical management of persistent adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) excess in Nelson syndrome (NS) and Cushing disease (CD) remains a challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[mrmjournal.biomedcentral.com] Iatrogenic Cushing's disease (iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome) is the most common cause of cushingoid symptoms.[symptoma.com] 8mg dexamethasone test (pituitary tumors more likely to suppress cortisol 50%), CRH stimulation (pituitary tumors more likely to stimulate cortisol post CRH), presence of hypokalemia[hopkinsguides.com]

  • Ectopic ACTH Syndrome

    The hypokalemia was resistant to potassium supplementation and persisted for 4 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among patients with Cushing's disease, reversible hypoadrenalism occurred once.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aim of this study was to evaluate serum DHEA-S, androstenedione (A) and testosterone (T) levels in 36 women with ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome (30 with Cushing's disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Rarely, DKA patients may present with significant hypokalemia.[web.archive.org] Hormonal diseases Some hormonal diseases cause the body to produce too much of certain hormones, which sometimes cause insulin resistance and diabetes.[niddk.nih.gov] Endocrine: Cushing's syndrome, acromegaly, thyrotoxicosis, phaeochromocytoma, glucagonoma.[patient.info]

  • Psychosis

    An association is documented between hypokalemia and an acute psychotic decompensation in a patient with chronic schizophrenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Cushing's syndrome, hypoparathyroidism and hyperparathyroidism; sex hormones also affect psychotic symptoms and sometimes giving[en.wikipedia.org] […] cardiac arrhythmias, as well as other circumstances that may increase the risk of the occurrence of torsade de pointes and/or sudden death, including symptomatic bradycardia, hypokalemia[acadia-pharm.com]
