Abstract

The diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome (CS) represents a challenge for endocrinologists. Several screening tests are used, but none of them seems to be the gold standard for the diagnosis. The aim of this study was to confirm the diagnostic value of salivary cortisol (SC) as a first-level screening test and to evaluate the clinical performance of a electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) method.
