Cushing's syndrome secondary to adrenal adenoma during pregnancy.
Cushing's syndrome during pregnancy is rare because of the suppressive effect of excessive glucocorticoid on the female reproductive system. Adrenal adenoma is the most common cause of Cushing's syndrome during pregnancy. Surgical treatment by unilateral adrenalectomy was preferred during pregnancy before the advent of laparoscopic adrenalectomy. We describe two patients with Cushing's syndrome secondary to adrenal adenoma diagnosed during the first and second trimester, respectively, and successfully managed by different approaches of laparoscopic adrenalectomy-one patient upon diagnosis and one after pregnancy.
