NINDS:44 Cushing's syndrome, also called , is a rare endocrine disorder caused by chronic exposure of the body's tissues to excess levels of cortisol - a hormone naturally produced by the adrenal gland. Exposure to too much cortisol can occur from long-term use of synthetic glucocorticoid hormones to treat inflammatory illnesses. Pituitary adenomas (benign tumors of the pituitary gland) that secrete increased amounts of ACTH ( a substance that controls the release of cortisol) can also spur overproduction of cortisol. Tumors of the adrenal gland and ectopic ACTH syndrome (a condition in which ACTH is produced by various types of potentially malignant tumors that occur in different parts of the body) can cause similar problems with cortisol balance. Common symptoms of Cushing's syndrome include upper body obesity, severe fatigue and muscle weakness, high blood pressure, backache, elevated blood sugar, easy bruising, and bluish-red stretch marks on the skin. In women, there may be increased growth of facial and body hair, and menstrual periods may become irregular or stop completely. Neurological symptoms include difficulties with memory and neuromuscular disorders.

MalaCards: Adrenal Gland Hyperfunction, also known as hypercortisolism, is related to cushing's syndrome and adrenal adenoma. An important gene associated with Adrenal Gland Hyperfunction is AVP (arginine vasopressin), and among its related pathways are Selected targets of CREB1 and Ovarian steroidogenesis. The drugs fludrocortisone and fluorocortisol acetate and the compounds cortisol and cortisone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include cortex, adrenal gland and skin.
