CONTEXT In patients with adrenal incidentalomas and subclinical hypercortisolism (SH), the factors influencing bone and the prevalence of vertebral fractures are debated. Spinal deformity index (SDI), which reflects bone quality, has never been evaluated. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate in these patients SDI and factors influencing the prevalence of fractures. DESIGN This was a retrospective, multicenter study. SETTING The study was conducted on an in- and… CONTINUE READING
