Preliminary data suggest that prohormone convertase 1 (PC1/3) protein expression and proopiomelanocortin (POMC) processing are altered in large corticotroph tumors. The aim of this study was to characterize the levels of ACTH precursors and PC1/3 protein in small and large corticotroph tumors of dogs with Cushing's disease. Pituitary tumors of dogs...
Clinical case reports
Our objective is to report a case of thyrotoxicosis following pituitary adenectomy for Cushing's disease, the only pediatric case to our knowledge. No thyroid antibodies were detected, and the thyrotoxicosis was successfully treated for 3 months with no relapse after 5 years of follow-up. The cause of thyrotoxicosis remains unknown.
