The hyper-responsiveness of plasma cortisol to vasopressin has been reported in patients with ACTH-independent bilateral macronodular adrenocortical hyperplasia (AIMAH) and in certain cases of Cushing's adenomas with overexpression of V1a receptors in the adrenal gland. We previously reported a high prevalence of the adrenal hyper-responsiveness of plasma cortisol to vasopressin (vasopressin responders) in Japanese patients with Cushing's syndrome (CS), in which vasopressin responders had low… CONTINUE READING
