[Unusual abdominal apudomas. I. Cushing syndrome in association with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in an endocrine pancreas tumor].
Zentralbl Allg Pathol. 1985; 130(5):369-74.ZA

Abstract

Ectopic production of ACTH is observed in 6% of patients with Cushing syndrome. Ten percent of these cases are related to endocrine pancreatic tumors. In a few cases a multiplicity of hormones are produced. The combination with a Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is very infrequent. In the present case, a female patient aged 54, there was an interval between the onset of Zollinger-Ellison and Cushing syndrome. The combination of bilaterally enlarged adrenals in the absence of an adrenal adenoma and the presence of Crooke-cells in the adenohypophysis in a patient with Cushing syndrome are of diagnostic significance. This trias should always alert the physician to the possibility of extrahypophyseal ACTH production.
