Cushing disease can cause abdominal stretchmarks, red cheeks, fatty hump between shoulders, pendulous abdomen and thin arms and legs.

The US Food and Drug Administration approved an oral tablet, Isturisa, for adults with Cushing’s disease, on Friday. This drug is targeted at individuals that cannot undergo pituitary gland surgery or have undergone the surgery but are still affected by the disease.
