Abstract

A prompt diagnosis of Cushing's Syndrome (CS) in high-risk populations is mandatory: 1-mg dexamethasone suppression test (1-mg DST), late night salivary cortisol (LNSC), and urinary-free cortisol (UFC) are recommended, despite thresholds calculated in retrospective studies. Our aim was to study the diagnostic accuracy of LNSC measured with chemiluminescence assay in a prospective study, confirming discrepancies with mass spectrometry (MS).
