Cushing's Hub

A resource for healthcare professionals caring for patients with Cushing’s syndrome

This editorial looks at highly important yet non-routine aspects of Cushing’s syndrome and encourages readers to consider aspects of the disease where literature is scarce. Topics include once-in-a-lifetime events necessitating hospitalization – sometimes before diagnosis is made – and practical advice on the use of steroidogenesis inhibitors. The editorial also highlights recent research on the effect of Cushing’s syndrome on pregnancy outcomes.
