The accelerated bone resorption, which is usually the cause of the hypercalcaemia, is believed to be mediated by hormonal and/or metabolic mechanisms. The symptoms of hypercalcaemia will not be elaborated, but their severity is usually related to the level of serum calcium. 0 mmolllitre and the serum phosphate low or normal. When secondary renal damage ensues, hypokalaemic alkalosis may occur. The clinical features which help to distinguish this disorder from primary hyperparathyroidism include the rapidity of onset of symptoms and the absence of either periosteal bone resorption or nephrocalcinosis.

The bioactivity of this 22-K ACTH is some 10% of 1-39 ACTH (SJ Ratter, PhD thesis). It was hoped that this 22-K ACTH could be a marker for lung tumours. However, it is also released by ectopic ACTH-secreting tumours in sites other than the lungs and recently has been shown to be released from a large and aggressive atypical pituitary tumour (Ratter et al. 1983). Since the ACTH is concomitantly synthesised with /3-LPH and y-MSH as proopiomelanocortin, it is not surprising to find that the levels of these other peptides are elevated, similarly to that of ACTH, in ectopic Cushing's syndrome (Jeffcoate et al.
