Abstract

Cushing syndrome is associated with significant morbidity and mortality if left untreated because of associated metabolic and cardiovascular complications. An extremely ill Patient with Cushing's syndrome caused by adrenocorticotropic hormone producing pituitary macro adenoma responded dramatically to ketoconazole and cabergoline treatment. His 4 month long medical treatment resulted in improvement of hypercotisolism clinically and biochemically and in complete disappearance of pituitary macro adenoma without any surgical intervention.
