Cushing's disease

Cushing's disease (also known as Cushing disease, tertiary or secondary hypercortisolism, tertiary or secondary hypercorticism, Itsenko-Cushing disease) is a cause of Cushing's syndrome characterised by increased secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from Pituitary Corticotroph Adenoma (the anterior pituitary secondary hypercortisolism), leading to excess glucocorticoid and hypercortisolism.

see Pituitary Corticotroph Adenoma.
