Cushing syndrome (described in this paper) occurs when your body is exposed to high levels of the hormone cortisol for a long time. "Perhaps [Harvey Cushing's] most enduring contribution to clinical medicine is Cushing Syndrome, described in 1932. It was Cushing himself who deftly realized the collective signs of a small series of patients whilst preparing the background reading for his 1930 Lister Lecture on pituitary physiology. This, for the first time, more completely explained other researchers' partial explanations, for example, the term 'diabetes of bearded women'. Cushing syndrome is the consequence of hypersecretion of the adrenal cortex due to any aetiology, although the original case series described three instances of pituitary basophilic adenomas."
