Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The thirty-third instance of pregnancy and Cushing's syndrome is presented and the literature is reviewed. There is a poor fetal prognosis without definitive treatment of Cushing's syndrome during pregnancy. Maternal complications are common with adrenal adenomas, 44% developing pulmonary edema and 100% developing hypertension. Prompt diagnosis and early treatment are necessary.
