Cushing’s disease was first discovered and described in humans in 1912 by a neurosurgeon named Harvey Cushing. It has subsequently been found to occur in many species, including horses, cats, and dogs. Its scientific name is hyperadrenocorticism.

These are small structures that sit on top of the kidneys.
