Cushing’S Syndrome

(Cushing’s Syndrome)

Cushing’s syndrome is characterized by symptoms that are caused by chronically elevated levels of cortisol or similar corticosteroids. The Cushing’s syndrome is Cushing’s syndrome, on the floor of a pituitary adenoma, is caused by excessive production of pituitary adrenocorticotropic hormone, usually. The typical symptoms and complaints are moon face and upper body obesity, hematoma and slender arms and legs. The diagnosis is made based on a Kortikosteroideinnahme history of, or for the detection of elevated Serumkortisolwerte. Treatment depends on the cause.

Etiology A hyperfunction of the adrenal cortex may occur ACTH-dependent or independent of ACTH. An ACTH-dependent hyperfunction can arise hypersecretion of ACTH by the pituitary gland (Cushing’s syndrome) secretion of ACTH by a tumor nichthypophysären such. As small cell carcinoma of the lung, or a carcinoid (ectopic ACTH syndrome) administration of exogenous ACTH An ACTH-independent hyperfunction usually arises by the therapeutic administration of corticosteroids or adrenal adenomas or carcinomas. Among the rare causes include a primary pigmented nodular adrenal dysplasia (usually in adolescents) and a macronodular dysplasia (in the elderly). While the term Cushing’s syndrome describes the clinical picture of each type of Kortisolexzess regardless of the cause, the term Cushing’s disease refers to the overactivity of the adrenal cortex as a result of increased pituitary ACTH secretion. Patients with Cushing’s syndrome usually have a small pituitary adenoma. Symptoms and signs Clinical manifestations of Cushing’s syndrome include moon face with a cluttered appearance tribe Stressed obesity with prominent supraclavicular and dorsal cervical fat pads ( “buffalo hump”) Usually, rangy distal extremities and fingers Cushing syndrome (moon face) © Springer Science + Business Media var model = {thumbnailUrl: ‘/-/media/manual/professional/images/576-cushing-syndrome-moon-facies-s170-springer-high_de.jpg?la=de&thn=0&mw=350’ imageUrl: ‘/ – / media / manual / professional / images / 576-cushing-syn ?
