Numerous clinical manifestations have been described in association with Cushings disease (CD). There was no eligible data on pulmonary function tests in CD patients. We aimed to assess pulmonary function test included spirometry in a series of patients with active Cushings disease (2 men, 9 women). Mean age, height, weight, body mass index were 36.7±12.6 (range 2263 years), 156.9±8.4 cm, 74.1±10.7 kg, 29.6±3.8 kg/m2, respectively. Spirometric abnormalities (impairments of FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC and FEF 2575 values) were not found, and not different from referans values. In conclusion, there was detected any spirometric impairment in CD patients. It is to need further analyses.
