To the editor: In their article, "Remission of Cushing's Syndrome After Unilateral Adrenal Phlebography," Fellerman, Dalakos, and Streeten (1) described a patient with this remission. I wish to describe a similar case.
The patient, a 58-year-old woman, was admitted to our hospital in January 1970 for evaluation of hypertension and a cushingoid habitus. Blood pressure was consistently above normal (mean, 180/110 mm Hg, recumbent). The serum potassium was 3.5 mEq/litre; serum sodium, 146 mEq/litre; chloride, 96 mEq/litre; carbon dioxide, 27 mEq/litre. Urinary 17-hydroxycorticoids (17-OHCS) excretion per 24 hours was normal. The plasma cortisol (2) level was normal at 8 AM
