We have experienced the anesthetic management of bilateral adrenalectomy in a 17 years old male, who was diagnosed as Cushing's syndrome. Anesthetic problems in Cushing`s Syndrome are hypertension, tachrcardia, hyperglycemia, hypokalemia and acute adrenal insufficiency. Therefore anesthetic management of this disease should focus on the through understanding of pathophysiology and adequate control of preoperative condition. Careful monitoring of the patient and frequent measurement of electrolytes and acid base balance status during the operation are also needed. We report the case of anesthetic experience of Cushing`s Syndrome and review anesthetic choice and management for better outcome of the patient.
