          Abstract

          The desmopressin test is generally regarded as an alternative to the CRH test but it is unclear whether desmopressin is as effective as CRH in the differential diagnosis of ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome. However, a precise assessment of the operating characteristics of the desmopressin test in comparison with the CRH test has not been reported. The aim of the present study was to make a comparative evaluation of desmopressin and CRH tests in a consecutive cohort of patients with ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome and in a group of healthy subjects.
