Ectopic ACTH Syndrome in a Child With Abdominal Ewing Sarcoma: A Rare Paraneoplastic Phenomenon
Nephrology; Medicine; Pediatrics
Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome is a paraneoplastic phenomenon rarely seen in pediatrics and rarely described in Ewing sarcoma. We report a 15-year-old boy with abdominal Ewing sarcoma and clinical and laboratory findings of ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone syndrome that promptly resolved with treatment of the tumor.
