Mania in Cushing's syndrome: case report.

Abstract
A case is described of recurrent mania without depressive episodes in a patient subsequently diagnosed as having an ACTH-producing basophil adenoma. The difficulties involved in the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome, and the ramifications of neuroendocrinopathies' ability to mimic symptoms of functional psychosis, are discussed.
