The treatment for exogenous Cushing syndrome is gradual withdrawal of glucocorticoid. Pasireotide (Signifor) is a somatostatin analog that binds and activates human somatostatin receptors resulting in inhibition of ACTH secretion, which leads to decreased cortisol secretion. It is indicated for treatment of adults with Cushing disease in whom pituitary surgery is not an option or has not been curative.

Similarly lack of cortisol leading to an adrenal crisis may occur in patients with endogenous Cushing syndrome who have undergone resection of an ACTH-producing or cortisol-producing tumor or who are taking adrenal steroid inhibitors.
