About Cushing’s Syndrome
Cushing’s syndrome is a condition caused by the prolonged exposure to very high levels of cortisol. This can occur because of the consumption of glucocorticoid drugs or diseases that result in excess cortisol, ACTH, and CRH secretion. Harvey Cushing described the pathophysiology of this condition in 1932. It is more common in women than in men. Cushing’s syndrome is also known as hypercortisolism, hypercorticism, hyperadrenocorticism, or Itsenko-Cushing syndrome. Some of the common symptoms of Cushing’s syndrome are increase in weight, facial acne, cognitive disorders, and vulnerability to superficial fungus infections, growth of a mass around the collarbone or back of the neck, commonly known as the “”buffalo hump,”” and puffy face or “”moon face””. Other symptoms include sweating, polyuria, and hypertension, dilation of the capillaries, thinning of the skin, red striae, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, immune suppression, sleep disturbances, muscle weakness, hirsutism, baldness, and hypocalcemia. Cushing’s syndrome can broadly be classified into corticotropin-dependent Cushing’s syndrome and corticotropin-independent Cushing’s syndrome.
