Adrenocortical carcinoma posing as a pheochromocytoma: a diagnostic dilemma.

Jain S, Agarwal L, Nadkarni S, Ameta A, Goyal A, Kumar R, Rao A, Gupta K - J Surg Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: Most of the adrenocortical tumours present clinically with Cushing's syndrome and signs of virilization due to over-production of the respective hormones.The histopathological examination confirmed the presence of ACC after the tumour was excised.This phenomenon was due to the presence of neuroendocrine features of ACC referred to, as a pseudo-pheochromocytoma with extremely limited data in the literature.

RJU030F4: MRI abdomen showing a hyperintense right suprarenal mass (CORONAL SECTION).

Mentions: Routine laboratory tests were unremarkable. Ultrasound of the abdomen showed a 5 × 5 cm solid-cystic mass overlying the right kidney. CECT abdomen confirmed the presence of a right suprarenal tumour measuring 6 × 5 × 5 cm with solid-cystic components and fluid levels suggestive of intratumoural haemorrhage. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of abdomen suggested an space occupying lesion in the right adrenal gland with multiple cystic spaces of variable sizes suggestive of pheochromocytoma. Fat planes to the adjacent structures were preserved with no evidence of metastases (Figs 1–4).Figure 1:
