Summaries for Ectopic Cushing Syndrome

Disease Ontology : 12 A primary hyperaldosteronism that is characterized by a tumor outside the pituitary gland produces a hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone.

MalaCards based summary : Ectopic Cushing Syndrome, also known as cushing syndrome due to ectopic acth secretion, is related to pancreatoblastoma and adrenal gland hyperfunction. An important gene associated with Ectopic Cushing Syndrome is POMC (Proopiomelanocortin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Neuroscience and G alpha (s) signalling events. The drugs Mifepristone and Octreotide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, thyroid and lung, and related phenotypes are round face and depressivity
