I believe its ACUTE PANCREATITIS. May be this link can help (it explains everything with a case!) - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...00127-0050.pdf

Thank you
Seems like there is no OBVIOUS link between the two phenomena, just simple observations. Treating a Cushing is necessary though to avoid a deadly acute pancreatitis.
