A syndrome characterized by hyperpigmentation, enlarging pituitary mass, visual defects secondary to compression of the optic chiasm, and elevated serum ACTH. It is caused by the expansion of an underlying acth-secreting pituitary adenoma that grows in the absence of feedback inhibition by adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS, usually after adrenalectomy.
