Last Updated: 07 May 2022

Nelson syndrome is a disorder characterized by abnormal hormonal agent secretion, enhancement of the pituitary gland, and the development of invasive and large developments referred to as adenomas. It occurs in an estimated 15 to 25 percent of people who go through medical removal of the adrenal glands for Cushing disease. Symptoms of Nelson syndrome consist of intense skin coloring, headaches, aesthetic field disruptions and the cessation of menstrual durations in women. The pituitary gland gets unusually large in Nelson syndrome, creating headaches and natural symptoms.
