Pseudotumor of Thymus Occuring After Hypercortisolism Recovery: Case Report Abstract #1426

Introduction: Cushing syndrome is due to an ectopic secreting adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in 10 % to 20% of cases. Among them, thymic tumors represent almost half of cases. It has been described that patients sometimes develop benign hyperplasia after hypercortisolism correction.
Aim(s): We represent a case of a thymic tumor to enhance the awareness of this entity in order to avert diagnostic thoracotomy.

#1206 Two Cases of Ectopic ACTH-Secreting Neoplasm of Occult Origin Becoming Overt After Bilateral Adrenalectomy
Introduction: Cushing's syndrome (CS) is an endocrine disorder associated with serious consequences if not adequately treated. Nearly 80% of the cases of endogenous hypercortisolism are adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) dependent, the ACTH source being pituitary in about 70-80% and ectopic in 10-15%. The ACTH source may remain occult in few cases for many years in spite of extensive investigations.
