Cortisol rise during pregnancy is connected with fetal maturation. Together with the increase of insulin resistance it might have a role in allocation of nutrients between mother and fetus. Cortisol and insulin secretion during pregnancy seems to be induced by fluctuations in BMR. Here, we try to identify relationship between BMR and secretion of cortisol and insulin during pregnancy.In 25 healthy women (age range 20–39 years; mean±S.D.<...

A 34-year-old woman was initially presented with clinical signs of Cushing’s syndrome (CS). On endocrinological examination, a diagnosis of ACTH dependent CS was established (serum cortisol: 08.00 h: 1245 nmol/l; 24.00 h: 275; plasma ACTH concentration 104 ng/l; inadequate cortisol suppresion on LDDST (787) and suppresion to 318 following HDDST). A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed a microadenoma in the left part of the pituitary. Ultrasound examination confirmed...
