ملخص

We describe two patients of the Department of Medicine at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman, with Cushing’s disease. Their magnetic resonance imaging scans of the pituitary were negative. One patient was treated by transsphenoidal surgery and the other by bilateral endoscopic adrenalectomy. Both procedures were successful and the patients cured. The advantages and disadvantages of these two approaches are discussed.
