Abstract

Two cases of Cushing's disease are presented. In both cases successful treatment was followed by the development of a steroid-responsive disease condition, a seronegative arthritis in the first case and retinal vasculitis in the second. It is likely that both these conditions were unmasked by the fall in the endogenous steroid levels following the successful treatment of the Cushing's disease by trans-sphenoidal hypophysectomy.
