Abstract

The relations of post‐dexamethasone cortisol levels to computerized tomography (CT) scan findings of lateral and third ventricle size and cortical sulcal prominence rated separately for frontal and parieto‐occipital distributions were examined in 15 manic patients. Failure to suppress endogenous cortisol after a dexamethasone challenge was associated with larger third ventricles, but not to any of the other CT scan measures.
