Bulky trunk but slender limbs,
The contour described as a 'lemon on match-sticks',
The full-moon face and the neck plump,
The rounded shoulders and a 'bufello hump',
The pursed lips and acne eruption-
On tissue-paper skin, with repeated infection
The dusky skin has excessive hair,
This hypertricosis is lanugo, tender.
The fresh red striae on the stretched abdomen,
And at any age develops hypertension.
In the female patients the cycles are absent,
And with 'Cushing's syndrome' the males are impotent.
