    Ectopic ACTH syndrome: a clinical challenge

    A patient was managed in our endocrinology unit with ectopic Cushing's syndrome from an adrenocorticotropic hormone-producing neuroendocrine carcinoma of the anal canal. There was limited response to standard therapy, which made it difficult to correct the electrolyte and metabolic derangements...

    Determining adrenocortical activity as a measure of stress in African buffalo (<em>Syncerus caffer</em>) based on faecal analysis

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Little is known about the levels of stress experienced by African buffalos affected by injury, disease, or socio-ecological and anthropogenic factors. To be able to start filling this gap, we examined the suitability of two 11-oxoaetiocholanolone enzyme-immunoassays (EIAs) detecting 11,17...

    Latest diagnostic approaches to determine the cause of ACTH-dependent Cushing’s syndrome, in the South African setting

    A case of a 50-year-old woman who was referred for the evaluation of possible ACTH-dependent Cushing’s syndrome (CS) is described. The localisation of ACTH-dependent CS remains difficult despite many advances in diagnostic approaches. No single test can accurately determine the...
  4. Non-invasive assessment of adrenocortical activity as a measure of stress in leopards <em>Panthera pardus</em>

    Non-invasive assessment of adrenocortical activity as a measure of stress in leopards <em>Panthera pardus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Leopards Panthera pardus are classified in the IUCN Red List as Vulnerable, primarily due to habitat loss, natural prey base depletion and exploitation caused by various anthropogenic activities. Although protected areas are important for leopard conservation, the majority of suitable...
