Mitra S, Roy SG, Sur PK - Indian J Med Paediatr Oncol (2009)

Bottom Line: In most cases, hormonal investigations reveal an excess secretion of steroids, mostly cortisol and androgens.A 54-year-old lady presented with history of pain in left shoulder and leg for 6 months and features of virilization.The patient has received palliative radiotherapy for the skeletal lesions and 3 cycles of palliative chemotherapy at present.

ABSTRACT
Adrenocortical cancer is a very rare tumor with a poor prognosis. About half of them are hormone-secreting tumors. In most cases, hormonal investigations reveal an excess secretion of steroids, mostly cortisol and androgens. A 54-year-old lady presented with history of pain in left shoulder and leg for 6 months and features of virilization. CT-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology of an abdominal mass revealed the presence of a carcinoma of the left adrenal cortex. A whole-body radionuclide bone scan revealed increased uptake in the left clavicle and left femur. The patient has received palliative radiotherapy for the skeletal lesions and 3 cycles of palliative chemotherapy at present.

Figure 0005: Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the left adrenal mass showing carcinomatous cells

Mentions: Ultrasonography (USG)-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) from the left adrenal swelling showed malignant cells, possibly adrenocortical carcinoma [Figure 5]. FNAC from the left clavicular swelling revealed metastatic malignancy.
