Patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing’s Syndrome and a normal pituitary MRI should undergo BIPSS to confirm the source of ACTH. If the source is confirmed as the pituitary gland, then transsphenoidal surgery should be performed. However, recurrence may be seen many years later and therapy should be tailored to the patient’s age, sex, lifestyle requirements and disease.
