Cushing`s syndrome is produced by the hypersecretion of adrenal glucocorticoids and characreized by moon face, central obesity, disappearance of diurnal variation of plasma cortisol level and unsuppressibility of plasma cortisol level by low-dose dexametasone. Acute pancreatitis is produced by alcohol, gallstone, drugs, and rarely by hyperlipidemia. Hyperlipidemia and excessive corticosteroid by Cushing`s syndrome will cause acute pancreatitis. We report a rare case of Cushing`s syndrome due to adrenocortical adenoma associated with acute pancreatitis and diabetic ketoacidosis which was manifested by hypertension, central obesity, left adrenal mass and complicated by pancreatic pseudocyst on pancreatic head. Left adrenalectomy and external drainage of pancreatic pseudocyst were performed and hypertension improved after the operation.
Key Words: Cushing`s syndrome, Adrenocortical adenoma, Acute pancreatitis, Diabetic ketoacidosis
