This study examined how often pseuodotumor cerebri occurs after successful surgery for Cushing's disease.
Pseudotumor Cerebri after Surgical Remission of Cushing's Disease
Journal: The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism (February 2010)
Authors: Kiehna EN, Keil M, Lodish M, et al.
Purpose: To determine the rates of incidence and occurrence of pseudotumor cerebri after successful surgery for Cushing’s disease.
Results: A 3% occurrence of pseudotumor cerebri was observed in children in the study, but the syndrome did not appear in adults. The researchers conclude: “A patient exhibiting signs of intracranial hypertension after surgery for CD should undergo an evaluation for pseudotumor cerebri. Recognition of the symptoms and treatment should correct and/or prevent ophthalmological sequelae.”
