Evidence exists that up to 34% of patients with CushingÂ’s disease (CD) have some degree of endogenous cortisol secretion after bilateral adrenalectomy due to ACTH driven hyperplasia of residual cortical tissue. We present a case of a patient with atypical corticotropinoma/carcinoma and recurrence of CD after bilateral adrenalectomy.A 59-year-old man presented with Cus...
