Cushing’s Syndrome Complicating Pregnancy


Ip Kar Hung, Ng Hou and Tam Kuok Wa

To reveal Cushing’s syndrome in pregnancy is difficult since there are no worldwide consent guidelines for making a definitive diagnosis. Some advocate using urine free cortisol as more than four times the upper limit of normal or salivary cortisol is two to three times above. It is also difficult to evaluate the optimal time of surgical intervention because most cases are diagnosed at or beyond their second trimester. In the case describe below, the disease was being suspected because there was a lost circadian variation of serum cortisol, which could be a reasonable initiate test for clinical suspicious cases in our further practice.
