Introduction: Isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency (IAD) is a rare disease, which is characterized by secondary adrenal insufficiency with low cortisol production, and normal secretion of pituitary hormones other than ACTH. Although it is known that QT prolongation is sometimes observed in patients with IAD, reports on IAD in which the QT interval was sufficiently prolonged to cause Torsades de Pointes (TdP) are rare. We described the case of a patient with I...

Introduction: Lymphocytic hypophysitis (LH) is a heterogeneous inflammatory condition in the pituitary gland, which may cause hormonal deficiency. However, some patients with LH initially present with headache.Case: A 63-year-old woman complained of a severe headache for 1 month. Examination of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) showed increased lymphocyte counts, indicating meningitis. Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an expanding sell...

Introduction: Adrenal adenoma is one of the extraintestinal lesions associated with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Only four cases of CushingÂ’s syndrome due to adrenal adenoma complicated by FAP, including ours, have been reported to date.Case report: A 37-year-old woman presented with pretibial edema and hirsutism. She was diagnosed with FAP at 8 years old. She had undergone resection of craniopharyngioma at 10 years old and repeated removal...
