Abstract

Background Cushing's Syndrome (CS) is associated with excess and premature cardiovascular disease. Endothelial dysfunction is the initiating event in the development of atherosclerosis. Endothelial function is assessed by flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of brachial artery. The aim of this study was to assess FMD in patients with CS.
