  • Clitoral Hemangioma - Rarest Cause of Clitoromegaly. [Case Reports]
    J Indian Assoc Pediatr Surg. 2022 Nov-Dec; 27(6):751-752.Thakur AN
  • Clitoromegaly in female child is a rare condition. This is often associated with androgen excess in disorders of sexual differentiation usually congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Nonhormonal causes of clitoromegaly are rare and are commonly due to neurofibromatosis, epidermoid cyst, rhabdomyosarcoma, and very rarely hemangioma. Hemangioma is one of the common benign neoplasms of infancy, usually loc…
  • A Rare Case of Renal Cell Carcinoma With Inferior Vena Cava Invasion: A Life-Threatening Complication. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32978.Nduji AJ, Rentiya ZS, … Khan A
  • Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) arises from the renal tubular epithelial cells and comprises a group of heterogenous renal tumors. Renal tumors can metastasize to involve almost any body organ, the common sites being the lung, liver, bone, brain, adrenal gland, head, neck, and rarely, inferior vena cava (IVC), leading to lethal outcomes. We present a case of RCC with IVC invasion in a patient who pres…
  • Intestinal tuberculosis in a patient with Cushing's syndrome. [Case Reports]
    IDCases. 2023; 31:e01674.Soriano JME, Amadore RA, … Gatchalian LB
  • A 39-year-old woman presented with cushingoid features was worked up and diagnosed to have ACTH-independent Cushing's syndrome. Computed tomography of the whole abdomen revealed a left adrenal mass. She was scheduled for elective laparoscopic left adrenalectomy, however, a few days prior to the surgery, the patient had hematochezia. Colonoscopy revealed multiple ulcers on the terminal ileum, to w…
  • A rare case of co-secreting adrenocortical oncocytoma. [Case Reports]
    Urol Case Rep. 2023 Jan; 46:102285.Kovacic J, Louie-Johnsun M
  • Here we present a rare case of a large co-secreting adrenocortical oncocytoma undergoing laparoscopic retroperitoneal-to-open removal. Our case was referred for surgical opinion as a result of a left suprarenal mass being identified as part of a work-up for new onset hirsutism and post-menopausal bleeding. We provide example of our surgical approach as well as discussion on this unique adrenal tu…
  • ACTH-independent production of 11-oxygenated androgens and glucocorticoids in an adrenocortical adenoma. [Case Reports]
    Eur J Endocrinol. 2022 Dec 01; 187(6):K39-K45.Kitamura T, Blinder AR, … Tagami T
  • CONCLUSIONS: Due to its rarity, biochemical and histologic characteristics of androgen and glucocorticoid co-secreting adrenocortical adenomas are largely unknown. Herein, we report a case of adrenocortical adenoma that caused marked hyperandrogenemia and mild autonomous cortisol secretion. In this study, we investigated serum steroid profiles using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and histologic characteristics of the resected tumor. LC-MS/MS revealed highly elevated levels of 11-oxygenated androgens which have not been well studied in adrenal tumors. The expression patterns of steroidogenic enzymes determined by immunohistochemistry supported the results of steroid profiling and suggested the capacity of the tumor cells to produce 11-oxygenated androgens. Measurement of 11-oxygenated steroids should facilitate a better understanding of androgen-producing adrenocortical neoplasms.
  • [Steroid profiling characteristics in pediatrc adrenal diseases]. [Journal Article]
    Probl Endokrinol (Mosk). 2022 Nov 03; 68(6):110-120.Yanar EA, Makazan NV, … Peterkova VA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results of our study steroid profiling can be used as additional differential diagnosis method in patients with adrenocortical adenomas with or without hormonal hyperproduction (ACTH-independent Cushing syndrome and incidentaloma). Further studies are needed to identify steroid markers for subtyping pediatric adrenal diseases.
  • Accentuated 123ImIBG uptake by the left lobe of the liver - A clue to nowhere. [Case Reports]
    J Pak Med Assoc. 2022 Oct; 72(10):2124-2125.Bashir H, Pina C, … Naeem K
  • A 57-year-old male was imaged with 123I mIBG for left sided suprarenal mass. The planar and SPECT-CT acquisitions revealed features consistent with a left sided pheochromocytoma. There was physiological and high uptake in the hypertrophied left lobe of the liver which was normal at both MRI and non-contrast CT. Asymmetrical increased 123I mIBG uptake in the left lobe of the liver as compared to t…
  • A Rare Case of Thoracoabdominal Paraganglioma: A Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32504.Baptista P, Benido Silva V, … Palma I
  • Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors. Pheochromocytomas are derived from chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla, while paragangliomas arise from the extra-adrenal autonomic paraganglia. Paragangliomas can derive from either parasympathetic or sympathetic paraganglia. The majority of parasympathetic ganglia-derived paragangliomas are nonfunctional and symptoms arise…
  • The Etiological Profile of Adrenal Incidentalomas. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32564.Lahmamssi FZ, Saadaoui L, … El Ouahabi H
  • Introduction An adrenal incidentaloma (AI) is an unsuspected tumor in one or both adrenal glands, which is discovered incidentally on an imaging exam not prompted by adrenal exploration. The etiologies can be multiple; they condition therapeutic management. The objective of our study is to describe the etiological and therapeutic profiles of AI in our department. Materials and methods A retrospec…
  • [Adrenal tumors: diagnostics, perioperative management and surgical treatment]. [Journal Article]
    Urologie. 2023 Jan 18 [Online ahead of print]Engelmann S, Burger M, Mayr R
  • Space-occupying lesions of the adrenal glands are one of the most frequent tumors; however, only a fraction of approximately 20% need further diagnostics and treatment. The diagnostic standard is native computed tomography (CT). For larger tumors and those that cannot be clearly classified as benign, the supplementary radiological modalities magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), contrast CT and 18F-f…
  • Intracardiac paraganglioma with a cough as the first symptom. [Case Reports]
    J Cardiothorac Surg. 2023 Jan 17; 18(1):30.Jingyi C, Qing X, … Fanglin L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs) are a kind of neuroendocrine tumors. PPGLs can cause secondary hypertension, and lead to a series of clinical syndromes, including myocardial injury, metabolic changes, and so on. The occurrence of PPGIs is related to gene mutation. Biochemical detection, imaging examination, and genetic testing can help diagnose. The tumor should be surgically removed as soon as possible after the diagnosis. As a functional tumor, PPGLs should be fully prepared before surgery to avoid anesthesia and huge fluctuations in blood pressure during and after surgery, or the occurrence of fatal hypertensive crisis and intractable hypotension after tumor resection. Adequate preoperative preparation directly affects the prognosis of patients after surgery. Therefore, multidisciplinary cooperation before, during, and after the operation is extremely important.
    Neuroendocrinology. 2023 Jan 16 [Online ahead of print]Seoudy AK, Schlicht K, … Laudes M
  • Introduction The present study aimed to prove the metyrapone short test in a day clinic to be suitable for examining the integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in patients with suspected secondary and tertiary adrenal insufficiency and to identify novel effector molecules in acute stress response. Methods 44 patients were prospectively enrolled. Based on stimulated 11-deoxycor…
  • Cardiac arrest as initial presentation of pheochromocytoma in a young. [Journal Article]
    Cardiol Young. 2023 Jan 12 [Online ahead of print]Li X, Wang R, Yang Z
  • We reported a case of pheochromocytoma with initial presentation of cardiac arrest. The patient underwent implantable cardioverter defibrillator for primary prevention but subsequently experienced repeated implantable cardioverter defibrillator shocks and syncopal episodes. A mass was found in the adrenal gland by CT, which was confirmed by anatomopathological analysis of the surgical specimen.
