Cushing's Syndrome With Adrenal Adenoma: Robotic Surger
Functional Adrenal adenoma secreting large, uncontrolled amount of steroid hormones is one of the cause of Cushing's syndrome. In this case, the patient presented with depression, psychotic symptoms, weight gain, increased facial hairs, abdominal strias, skin pigmentatation and raised lood pressure. MRI, CT and blood investigations were suggestive of functional adrenal adenoma. Robotic surgery provided minimal invasive approach with less than 5 mL blood loss and faster recovery. Patient showed significant improvement in depression and resolution of psychotic symptoms. An expert endocrinologist is needed to pick up the early signs and initiate the investigations. Results of surgery are dramatic and very satisfying, for both the patient and the treating physician.
