Tumours of the adrenal cortex of cats most commonly secrete cortisol or aldosterone.  The clinical presentations for each are different and easy to distinguish.  But, feline adrenal tumours can produce multiple hormones, including aldosterone and progesterone, or combinations of sex-steroid hormones, resulting in unusual signs.  Syndromes associated with progesterone excess include aggression, diabetes mellitus and meningioma growth.  In this talk, each syndrome will be illustrated with cases diagnosed and managed by the presenter.
