To determine whether or not petrosal sinus sampling is useful to distinguish patients with mild or intermittent Cushing disease from normal subjects and from individuals with pseudo-Cushing states, we performed bilateral inferior petrosal sinus sampling for adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) before and after the administration of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) in 7 eucortisolemic volunteers, 8 hypercortisolemic patients with pseudo-Cushing states, and 40 patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing disease whose urine free cortisol excretion was within the range found in patients having pseudo-Cushing states (<1000nmol/d [<360 μg/d]). The ACTH level, the ratio of the inf...
