Remission of Cushing’s disease associated with higher risk of developing autoimmune disease

A study of more than 250 persons undergoing surgical therapy for Cushing’s disease (CD) or nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) found that patients who achieved remission of CD were more likely than those with surgically treated NFPAs to develop new-onset autoimmune disease within 3 years after remission. The study is published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
