Silent corticotroph adenoma (SCA) is a non-functioning macroadenoma that has positive immunoreactivity for ACTH. Few studies have evaluated the biochemical behaviour of these tumours. We present the case of a 65-year-old male incidentally diagnosed with SCA, in which an exhaustive study of the corticotroph axis was conducted. © 2012 Neuroendocrinology Letters.
