  5. Thanks for the link: but the article Dr. L wrote was a bit upsetting.. "The high rate of recurrent symptoms after TSA, in combination with the aforementioned observations, implies that hypothalamic dysfunction may play a central role in the pathophysiology of this condition.10 The role of TSA in patients with an unequivocal diagnosis of cyclic CS remains uncertain. Beckers et al.3 and Shapiro et al.15 have reported that patients with cyclic CS suffer symptom recurrence after TSA. Based on these reports, TSA cannot be recommended as definitive treatment. Prospective studies of patients with a clear-cut diagnosis of cyclic CS will be needed to better define the role of TSA in this setting." so surgery might not be the answer.......hmmmmmm Conclusions
