INFLUENCE OF PITUITARY APOPLEXY ON THE CLINICAL COURSE AND RESULTS OF TREATMENT OF CUSHING’S DISEASE
Keywords:pituitary adenoma, Cushing’s disease, pituitary apoplexy, microsurgical resection, clinical and laboratory remission
It was present a synthesis of clinical experience of three rare cases of stroke-flow of Cushing’s disease, which has become possible with the surgical treatment of a large series of patients with this pathology. It was shown that a variant of the disease with hemorrhage into the tumor is possible only at the stage of the macroadenoma. Pituitary apoplexy had a positive influence on the nearest (lower levels of adrenocorticotropic hormone and cortisol) and long-term (persistent achievement of clinical and laboratory remission under the observation of more than 12 months) outcomes
