Coincidence of functioning adrenal adenoma and primary adrenal angiosarcoma should also be considered (7).
On confirmation, further testing is directed at distinguishing adrenocorticotropin (ACTH)-independent CS, due to autonomous cortisol secretion by an adrenal adenoma or bilateral adrenal nodular disease, from ACTH-dependent CS, usually reflecting an ACTH-secreting pituitary adenoma or more rarely due to ectopic ACTH secretion.
Of several possible underlying causes of PA, the most common are unilateral aldosterone producing adrenal adenoma and bilateral idiopathic adrenal hyperplasia (4).
Both primary and secondary hyperaldosteronism cause these abnormalities, the former via an appropriate response (renin release) to decreased renal perfusion pressure or decreased sodium concentration in the ultra filtrate, the latter an inappropriate release of aldosterone from the adrenal cortex, often a result of an adrenal adenoma.
The most commonly described collision tumor in the adrenal gland is adrenal adenoma with myelolipoma.[1] The other collision tumors reported in the adrenal glands include cases such as metastasis into an adenoma or myelolipoma and pheochromocytoma with adenoma or myelolipoma.[2],[3] In the present case, the larger tissue specimen demonstrated pheochromocytoma morphology, whereas the smaller tissue specimen showed typical characteristics of adrenocortical adenoma of the adrenal gland.
Seo et al.'s study about lipid-poor adrenal adenoma also showed the same results [11].
The absolute contrast washout of 22.9% was indeterminate for adrenal adenoma (Figure 1).
The patient underwent left adrenalectomy, and histological evaluation confirmed an adrenal adenoma. During follow-up, both PC and 24h-UFC values were normal.
(2) Long-term medical therapy for CS is ineffective and definitive therapy is the resection of pituitary or adrenal adenoma or bilateral adrenalectomy for hyperplasia.
Of the 245 patients having first-line CgA, 38 patients (15.5%) had newly diagnosed NET or a related tumor (5 carcinoid, 3 pheochromocytoma, 5 pancreatic NET, 7 adrenal adenoma, 2 prostatic adenocarcinoma, 2 GIT NET, 1 medullary thyroid carcinoma, 1 Schwannoma, 2 lung small cell carcinoma, 2 parathyroid adenoma, and 8 pituitary macroadenoma).
Magnetic resonance imaging revealed adrenal adenoma 29x27x31 mm in diameter at the left adrenal.
