Özet

The coexistence of Cushing's syndrome (CS) and pregnancy is uncommon due to the suppression of gonadotropin secretion in CS. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) dependent CS in pregnancy is less frequent than adrenal causes. The diagnosis of CS during pregnancy is difficult since physiological changes in the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis may cause dynamic tests to be misinterpreted. Radiological imaging is limited.
