Do you mean Cushing's disease or Cushing's syndrome?
The treatment of Cushing's syndrome depends upon the underlying cause.
When Cushing's syndrome results from an ACTH-producing tumor of the pituitary gland (Cushing's disease), treatment may include surgery, radiation, or medication to lower cortisol levels
Lysodren (mitotane) suppresses cortisol levels and can be used to treat Cushings disease often in combination with radiation.
