Cushing syndrome is due to the hyper secretion of which hormone in the body?

  1. Adrenal cortex
  2. Thyroid
  3. Pituitary
  4. Adrenal medulla

Answer :

Adrenal cortex


Cushing syndrome occurs when your body is exposed to high levels of the hormone cortisol for a long time.

Cushing syndrome, sometimes called hypercortisolism, may be caused by the use of oral corticosteroid medication.

The adrenal cortex is the outer region and also the largest part of an adrenal gland. The adrenal cortex produces hormones that controls sex (androgens, estrogens), salt balance in the blood (aldosterone), and sugar balance (cortisol).
