ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Benign Adrenal Adenoma

History: 53 yo asymptomatic female with known adrenal mass.

Findings: Non-contrast axial CT image demonstrates a well-circumscribed smoothly marginated, heterogeneous 3.5 x 3.2 cm mass arising from the left adrenal gland. There are areas within the mass that are low density and measure 5 HU. 50 seconds postcontrast axial CT image demonstrates the lesion to enhance heterogeneously, with areas within the mass measuring 113 HU. 15-minute delay postcontrast axial CT image demonstrates the lesion to enhance heterogeneously, with areas within the mass measuring 35 HU. The percentage enhancement washout was determined to be 72% consistent with a benign adrenal adenoma.

Ddx: Metastases: (Lung, Breast, Melanoma, Gastrointestinal, and Renal Cell Carcinoma ) Adrenal Myelolipoma Benign Nonfunctional Adrenal Adenoma Hyperfunctioning Adrenal Neoplasms with associated endocrine syndromes: (Cushing’s Syndrome, Conn’s Syndrome, Adrenogenital syndrome in newborns and infants.) Pheochromocytoma Infectious Etiologies: Tuberculosis Histoplasmosis Primary Adrenal Carcinoma

Dxhow: Cross sectional CT imaging.

Exam: Within Normal Limits.

No MeSH data available.
