Abstract: ACTH ectopic secretion syndrome represents one endogenous corticoid toxemia due to an excessive ectopic secretion of ACTH, been responsible out of 10 to 20 % of cases with Cushing syndrome. In contrast with Cushing disease, where the M:F ratio is 8:1, the ACTH ectopic secretion syndrome is far more frequently in men than in women. Pancreatic insular tumors represent about 10 % of cases with this syndrome. In this paper is presented one case of ACTH ectopic secretion syndrome in a 40 years old female, with one pregnancy with trombophilia 9 month ago, with sudden onset of weight loss of 5 kg since one month, and high blood pressure, mild hirsutism, vertigo, weakness and bone ache.
Keywords: ACTH, ectopic, secretion, syndrome
