Elsewhere in this issue1, 2 are reported two further instances of a striking and as yet imperfectly understood association between intrathoracic neoplasms and adrenal cortical hyperplasia and hyperfunction. Such an association, occasionally noticed from time to time in the past, is now being recorded with such frequency as to leave no doubt that the coexistence of these two disease processes is more than fortuitous. It is time to take stock of this syndrome both in the interest of the diagnostician and because of its intrinsic interest from the standpoint of pathophysiology.
To date 30 case reports1-11 have appeared in the
