The objective of this study was to assess the level of various salivary and urinary markers of patients with EHS and to compare them with those of the healthy control group.

We analyzed samples from 30 EHS individuals and a matched control group of 25 individuals (non EHS) aged between 22 and 66. We quantified cortisol both in saliva and urine, alpha amylase (sAA), immunoglobulin A and C Reactive Protein levels in saliva and neopterin in urine (uNeopterin).

sAA was found to be significantly higher (p < 0.005) in the EHS group. uNeopterin and sAA analysis showed a significant difference based on the duration of EHS.

Higher level of sAA in EHS participants may suggest that the sympathetic adrenal medullar system is activated. However, most of the analyzed markers of the immune system, sympathetic activity and circadian rhythm did not vary significantly in EHS group. There is a trend to the higher levels of some variables in subgroups according to the EHS duration.
