INTRODUCTION: Cushing's syndrome is associated with a number of clinical manifestations and co-morbidities which may not resolve even after long-term remission leading to excessive mortality.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This review summarizes the main manifestations of Cushing's syndrome (active or in remission) with particular focus on data from recently published literature.
CONCLUSION: Obesity and metabolic alterations, hypertension and cardio/cerebrovascular complications, hypercoagulability/thromboembolism, neuropsychiatric, muscle/skeletal and immune consequences remain the most challenging. Cardiovascular consequences and immunosuppression determine the main causes of death in Cushing's syndrome necessitating early intervention when possible.
