Term Description

Timed specimens are measured for corticotropin (also called adrenocorticotropic hormone or ACTH) for adrenocorticotropic hormone challenge tests to assist in diagnosing adrenocortical insufficiency as found in Cushing's syndrome and Addison's disease. For the CRH (corticotropin-releasing hormone) stimulation, CRH is given and cortisol and ACTH levels are determined before the injection, at the injection time, and specified times following injection. The CRH stimulation test is used to distinguish Cushings disease from conditions where ACTH is secreted ectopically. For the Metyrapone (overnight) stimulation challenge, metyrapone is given with a snack at midnight. Samples for cortisol, 11-deoxycortisol, and ACTH are collected the following morning. The metyrapone stimulation test distinguishes corticotropin-dependent causes (pituitary Cushing's disease and ectopic Cushing's disease) from corticotropin-independent causes (carcinoma of the lung or thyroid).
