Bottom Line: The level of serum carcinoembryonic antigen was normal.A bilateral adrenalectomy was performed after chemotherapy.Histopathological examination showed adenocarcinoma, compatible with metastasis from the rectal cancer.

ABSTRACT
We report a case of adrenal metastasis from colorectal cancer in a 54-year-old woman. Nine months after resection for advanced rectal carcinoma, a computed tomography scan revealed bilateral adrenal metastasis. The level of serum carcinoembryonic antigen was normal. A bilateral adrenalectomy was performed after chemotherapy. Histopathological examination showed adenocarcinoma, compatible with metastasis from the rectal cancer. Adrenal metastasis should be considered in the patients' follow-up for colorectal cancer.

(a) Histopathological findings showed cells difficult to typify (40). (b) Immunohistochemistry of the piece showed intense expression of cytokeratin (AE1/AE3). (c) Expression of CK20 similar to the primary colorectal carcinoma.

Mentions: Immunohistochemistry was positive for CK20, cytokeratin AE1/AE3, but negative for CK7, which is related to colorectal metastasis (Figure 2).
