Mild Hypercortisolism Due to Adrenal Adenoma
With the advent of CT scans and MRIs, more adrenal incidentalomas have been uncovered, she noted. Most are benign and nonsecretory, but recent research suggests that as many as one-third may produce a syndrome of mild hypercortisolism, which is quite different from Cushing's syndrome that endocrinologists are used to seeing. Nevertheless, questions persist about how to define this condition and how best to treat it. Alice C. Levine, MD, discusses these questions and more during a video interview at AACE 2016.
