Background: Cushing syndrome due to PPNAD is the main endocrine disorder of CNC, an autosomal dominant multiple neoplasia caused by germline inactivating mutations of the subunit type 1A (PRKAR1A) of the protein kinase A (PKA). In addition, germline inactivating mutations in the gene encoding phosphodiesterase 11A (PDE11A) have been identified in patients with PPNAD.Aim of the study: To investigate the role of PDE11A genetic alterati...

Introduction: ACTH-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (AIMAH) is often an incidental finding, but may be diagnosed in patients with CushingÂ’s syndrome. We have recently identified germline mutations in the armadillo repeat containing 5 gene (ARMC5) in AIMAH patients, associated with somatic second hits specific of each AIMAH nodule ( Assié et al, NEJM, 2013). The aim is to characterize the prevalence of ARMC5 mutations in AIMAH patients and the gen...
