Abstract: Adrenal pieces obtained from six female patients, three without increased adrenocortical function and three with cushing's disease, showed, in all adrenal cortex zones, cells containing simple and complex nuclear bodies. The simple nuclear bodies were spherical or ovoid and had a filamentous structure surrounded by a clear halo. Complex nuclear bodies were more numerous and heterogeneous in patients with adrenal pathology, and they were spherical with a proteinaceous filamentous capsule surrounding a core; the core was granular, filamentous or a mixture of granular and filamentous material, sometimes with a reticular or concentric arrangement. Some bodies showed vacuolar or multilocular aspect, and others had a close relationship with the nucleolus or appeared near the interchromatin granules.
