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.

RJU030F6: Post-operative specimen.

Mentions: During elective right adrenalectomy, the BP shot up to 180/140 mmHg (pre-operative BP was 140/90 mmHg). Control was achieved by continuous infusion of inj. nitroglycerine and IV bolus of inj. esmolol. The tumour was found to be abutting the IVC. Post-operative recovery was uneventful. No anti-hypertensive agents were prescribed during the hospital stay or on discharge (Figs 5 and 6).Figure 5:
