Perspectives on Hypercortisolism Diagnosis and Management in Community and Academic Centers

Sponsored by Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated.


Lewis Blevins, MD; Richard Auchus, MD, PhD; David Brown, MD, PhD; Amir Hamrahian, MD; and Smita Kargutkar, MD share their insights and real-world perspectives on hypercortisolism diagnosis and management, including:

• The understanding of hypercortisolism has evolved significantly over the past decades to extend beyond classic physical manifestations (e.g., central obesity, facial plethora, buffalo hump, purple striae)

• Early identification of patients with mild autonomous cortisol secretion is important as hypercortisolism can lead to age-inappropriate and treatment-resistant metabolic syndrome

• Patient identification and management approaches for hypercortisolism can differ between academic and community settings due to differences in available resources and multidisciplinary management teams

• Educating primary care providers and community endocrinologists about the consequences of hypercortisolism can be beneficial in bridging the gap between academic and community settings
