Background: Acne, stria and decreased skin elasticity are dermatological features of CushingÂ’s syndrome (CS). Although it is known that collagen mass in skin is decreased in CS and glucocorticoids play a role in acneiform skin lesions, the dermatological findings of CS has not previously been measured by reliable methods.Objective: The aim of the present study was to measure skin elasticity, capacitance, sebum content, pH and temperature in CS befor...
