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.

RJU030F8: Histopathologic picture 40×.

Mentions: Histopathological analysis reported a well-encapsulated cellular lesion composed of sheets, cords and trabeculae of round to oval epithelial cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and vesicular nuclei showing Grade 1–2 pleomorphism. Foci of bizarre-looking cells with frequent mitotic figures (1–2/10 HPF) seen. Focal areas of capsular invasion were seen without vascular invasion. A histopathological study indicated ACC (Figs 7 and 8).Figure 7:
