Aberrant adrenal LH expression is a rare cause of adrenal CushingÂ’s syndrome (CS) leading to transient hypercortisolism during pregnancies and ACTH-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (AIMAH) after the sustained postmenopausal increase of LH secretion. Subclinical CS due to aberrant LH expression has very rarely been described. Herein, we report a case with aberrant LH/hCG adrenal receptor mediated subclinical CS in a patient with incidentally discovered AIMAH an...
