The book takes a historical approach to discuss the tremendous and unprecedented research development for this rare condition and includes recently approved medications available. It covers everything from exogenous Cushing syndrome and how to deal with its complications, pseudo-Cushing syndrome (non-tumorous functional hypercortisolemia), endogenous cortisol production and its old and new treatment modalities, from pituitary to adrenal tumors, ectopic ACTH production, subclinical, cyclical Cushing syndrome, to aging and metabolic syndrome.

The book has a section dedicated to our patients with the patients’ experiences, which will add to the outcome research presented by the physicians. This is a must have reference for scientists and researchers with the latest information in diagnosing and treating this difficult-to-diagnose and difficult-to-treat condition and gives the clinician, a patient-centric approach to communicate with this particular group of patients.
