Is this pancreatic NET responsible for an ectopic ACTH-dependent Cushing’s syndrome?

Johanna Angelini , Carole Bourmorck , Devuyst France , Driessens Natacha

ACTH-dependent CS are mostly caused by pituitary adenoma (about 80-85% of the cases) and, in a lower proportion, by ectopic ACTH secretion (about 10-15% of the cases). The exact origin of an ectopic secretion of ACTH is not always easy to identify. The most common locations are bronchus, lung and pancreas but it can also be located ...
