Cushing's disease(CD) has significantly more white matter hyperintensities and enlarged perivascular spaces, compare to same-aged healthy subjects. Age, diabetes, hypokalemia was significantly related with white matter hyperintensities in CD. The gray matter volume of CD patients was significantly smaller than the healthy subjects. Compared with patients with type 2 diabetes alone, the mean age of CD with diabetes were younger with shorter course of disease, but with more severe white matter damage. the severity of white matter hyperintensities were ranked as belowed: CD with type 2 diabetes, CD without type 2 diabetes, type 2 diabetes.
