MEN1 and MEN2
Myth: "Men1 and Men2 are the only genetic causes of Cushing’s".
FACT: This is a Myth. More current research has explored multiple etiologies of Cushing's. It was once thought that heredity had no influence on the development of Cushing's Syndrome/Disease and our knowledge was once limited in this sense. Researchers have done more work in terms of exploring genetic factors in the onset of this disease. *~Robin Ess Staticnrg (Cushing's educator and advocate)
The following causes for Cushing's have all been explored:
1. Men 1
5. PRKAR1A(protein kinase,cAMP-dependent, regulatory, type I, ? gene)
