Am Fam Physician. 2002 Feb 1;65(3):386-387.

A patient information handout on Cushing's syndrome and Cushing's disease (September 1, 2000, page 1135) contained an inaccuracy in the discussion of the causes of Cushing's syndrome, in the first column of the first page. Both inhaled steroid medicines for asthma and steroid skin creams for eczema and other skin conditions can cause Cushing's syndrome, although this is rare. A corrected version of the patient information handout is available online.
