Context: Hair cortisol has been recently studied to determine evidence of hypercortisolemia in humans. This test may be valuable in estimating cortisol levels, particularly in patients with cyclical CushingÂ’s syndrome (CS).Objective: To determine correlations with biochemical evidence of CS, and to compare hair cortisol measurements in patients with CS to normative data.Methods: Hair samples from 49 study subjects were collect...

Context: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is a common cause of secondary hypertension, and some PA adrenal tumors co-secrete glucocorticoids, causing subclinical or overt Cushing syndrome (CS). We recently reported correlations between hair cortisol concentration (HCC) and serum and urinary levels of cortisol in patients with CS.Objective: To determine correlations of segmental hair cortisol and biochemical markers of a referred cohort of patients for the eval...
