Abstract

2 Cases of childhood Cushing’s disease have been treated with bilateral adrenalectomy and autotransplantation of adrenal tissue. Transplantation was unsuccessful in 1 case. In the other patient, replacement therapy was discontinued without any symptoms of hypo- or hyperadrenocorticism. Her urinary 17-hydroxycorticosteroids, free cortisol and aldosterone remain in the low normal range indicating functional adrenal tissue, probably a result of the transplant.
