  • [Title] Large adrenal oncocytoma with uncertain malignant potential: case report and review of literature.
  • OBJECTIVE: To report a case of oncocytoma, a relatively rare adrenal tumor, which most commonly is detected as an adrenal incidentaloma.
  • METHODS: We present a case report, including laboratory, imaging, and pathologic findings, of a 47-year-old obese woman who had hypertension and an incidentally found large, left adrenal mass.
  • RESULTS: On the basis of the hormonal evaluation, this mass was a nonsecreting adrenal tumor, which histologically proved to be an oncocytoma with borderline malignant characteristics.
  • A collective analysis of the few cases of adrenal oncocytoma published in the medical literature showed that our case corresponded to the previously published cases in preponderant location (left side) as well as the general size (11.4 cm in the largest dimension) and weight (372 g).
  • CONCLUSION: Adrenal oncocytoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of adrenal incidentalomas, especially if large tumors are detected.
  • In addition, a longterm follow-up is suggested because there are no certain clues about the true potential of this tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Paragangliomas are catecholamine-secreting tumors arising from the chromaffin cells of the sympathetic ganglia, and are known as extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas.
  • These tumors commonly present with episodic hypertension, tachycardia, headache, and diaphoresis, and can be either benign or malignant.
  • Diagnosis is made by serum and urine analysis for catecholamines and metanephrines, and confirmed with imaging studies including computed tomography scanning, magnetic resonance imaging, or 123-I metaiodobenzylguanidine imaging.
  • Genetic testing should be offered to patients diagnosed with paraganglioma, particularly in patients who are young, have multiple tumors, or have a family history of malignancy.
  • The majority of these tumors are benign, but for patients with malignant disease, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy may provide modest benefit.
  • Long-term follow-up is essential, as paragangliomas can recur many years after initial diagnosis.
  • Ongoing research into the genetic underpinnings of this tumor may allow for more targeted molecular therapies in the future.

  • [Title] Pheochromocytoma in patients suspected of harboring adrenal metastasis: management and clinical predictors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To study clinical management of patients with suspected adrenal metastasis and to assess whether there are clinical predictors of pheochromocytoma in this patient population.
  • METHODS: In this retrospective cross-sectional study, we reviewed medical records of patients who had adrenalectomy for adrenal lesions or had adrenal biopsy performed between January 1997 and July 2007 in a large academic hospital.
  • Patients who harbored adrenal masses that were suspected of being metastases were identified on clinical findings.
  • Pathologic diagnosis, demographic data, clinical history, imaging studies, and laboratory test results were reviewed and compared among patients whose adrenal mass was determined to be metastasis, adenoma, or pheochromocytoma.
  • RESULTS: One-hundred sixty-three patients had adrenalectomy or had adrenal biopsy during the study period.
  • Thirty patients (18%) had adrenal masses that were suspected of being metastases.
  • Of the adrenal masses, 18 (60%) were metastases, 8 (27%) were benign adenomas, and 4 (13%) were pheochromocytomas.
  • Adrenal biopsy was performed without biochemical testing for pheochromocytoma in 9 patients (30%), including 2 subsequently found to have this tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pheochromocytoma occurs frequently in patients suspected of harboring adrenal metastasis, but this tumor is often not considered in clinical practice.
  • The size and imaging characteristics of the adrenal mass and history of known metastasis may help clinicians in decision-making.
  • Biochemical testing for pheochromocytoma should ideally be performed in all patients suspected of having adrenal metastasis.

  • [Title] Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and 11C-metomidate positron emission tomography for evaluation of adrenal incidentalomas.
  • BACKGROUND: Given the higher sensitivity of modern computed tomography (CT) scanners, adrenal incidentalomas are being discovered increasingly often.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical use and value of MTO-PET compared to CT and MRI in the characterisation and work-up of adrenal incidentalomas.
  • METHODS: Initially, we retrospectively evaluated 20 adrenal incidentalomas in patients who had undergone CT, MRI and MTO-PET and from whom we had either histopathological diagnosis or clinical follow-up data.
  • In the latter study, 24 incidentalomas were imaged by CT, MRI and MTO-PET and the results were correlated to those from histopathology (n=8) and clinical diagnosis after follow-up (n=16).
  • RESULTS: In the retrospective analysis, MRI and especially MTO-PET, correlated well to histopathology and clinical diagnosis after follow-up, whereas specificity with CT was low.
  • CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of an adrenocortical adenoma may be established by CT in most patients and by MRI in an additional number.

  • Because of the almost normal plasma catecholamine concentration, the tumor was considered a nonfunctioning tumor.
  • However, when the surgeon manipulated the tumor during the operation, the patient's blood pressure increased suddenly to 240/120 mmHg.
  • After resection of the tumor, his blood pressure decreased to 80/40 mmHg, and the patient was treated with ephedrine, phenylephrine, and noradrenaline.
  • After surgery, the tumor was confirmed histopathologically as a pheochromocytoma.

  • [Title] SDHB-associated renal oncocytoma suggests a broadening of the renal phenotype in hereditary paragangliomatosis.
  • Renal tumours are also increasingly being reported as component tumours in hereditary paragangliomatosis associated with mutations in SDHB.
  • We present the first reported case of a family in whom an individual shown to carry a mutation in SDHB developed a renal oncocytoma.
  • We review other reports of renal tumours associated with SDHB-associated hereditary paragangliomatosis and suggest that various histological subtypes of renal tumours are part of this condition.
  • This observation indicates that SDHB-associated hereditary paragangliomatosis is unlike most tumour predisposition syndromes associated with the development of renal tumours which are usually associated with specific histological sub-types.
  • The increasing recognition of the involvement of renal tumours in SDHB mutation carriers suggests that renal screening is likely to be valuable for these patients.
  • SDHB mutations should also be considered in the context of genetic testing when renal tumours, regardless of histopathology, present in families with other tumours consistent hereditary paraganglioma syndrome.

  • Unlike norepinephrine-and epinephrine-secreting tumors, dopamine-secreting pheochromocytomas lack a classic clinical presentation and are often asymptomatic.
  • Urinary and serum metabolites cannot be relied on to make the diagnosis, and serum or urine dopamine levels (or both) must be measured when dealing with a potential pheochromocytoma.
  • Dopamine-secreting tumors are less likely to enhance with metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scanning and may benefit from the use of positron emission tomography.
  • Metyrosine is a medication that can be useful for preoperative control of symptoms from these tumors.
  • The prognosis for patients with these tumors is worse than for those with an epinephrine- and norepinephrine-secreting tumor.
  • Because of their asymptomatic nature, dopamine-secreting pheochromocytomas tend to be detected later and are more likely to be malignant at the time of diagnosis.

  • [Title] [Distal pancreas resection for metastasis of clear cell renal cancer].
  • BACKGROUND: Distant spread from renal cell carcinoma is commonly found in the liver and lung.
  • Metastatic involvement of any other gastro-intestinal organ (duodenum, other kidney, adrenal gland) is unexpected.
  • However, clear cell renal carcinoma is known to cause pancreatic metastasis.
  • METHODS: The authors present the case of a successfully operated 82- year-old man, who was operated for a metastatic tumor in his pancreas.
  • 8 years prior to his current hospitalization, a left sided nephrectomy was performed for renal cell carcinoma.
  • The CT scan revealed a tumor localised in the tail of the pancreas.
  • Histology revealed clear cell renal carcinoma metastasis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: pancreatic tumors are mostly primaries.
  • Renal cell carcinoma generally gives hepatic and pulmonary metastases.
  • However, clear cell renal carcinoma is known to give pancreatic metastasis, too.

  • Aberrant adrenal expression of LH receptors has been shown to cause Cushing's syndrome, but the role of LH receptors in Conn's disease (hyperaldosteronism) has not been studied.
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to determine whether APAs express elevated LH receptor, compared with normal adrenal (NA).
  • DESIGN: Pools of RNA from NA and APAs were hybridized to oligonucleotide microarrays.
  • Data were confirmed using real-time RT-PCR analysis of RNA derived from NA (n = 20) and APAs (n = 18).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Regulation of CYP11B2 gene expression by aberrant LH receptor expression in aldosterone-producing adrenal adenoma was measured.
  • RESULTS: LH/choriogonadotropin receptor gene and CYP11B2 are indicated as having greater than 25-fold expression in one pool of APA mRNA samples over NA using microarray analysis.
  • Real-time RT-PCR analyses indicated that one APA sample (APA-LH receptor) exhibited more than 2400-fold elevation in LH receptor expression over NA.
  • Examination of LH receptor mRNA levels in 18 independent APA samples indicated elevated expression in nine samples when compared with NA.
  • CONCLUSION: LH receptor expression is elevated in many APAs, which makes LH a potential cause of the excessive production of aldosterone in a subset of these adrenal tumors.

  • CONTEXT: Adrenal and extra-adrenal phaeochromocytoma are chromaffin cell-derived tumours that are discovered due to classical symptom triad with headache, sweating and palpitations combined with persistent or paroxysmal hypertension.
  • OBJECTIVE: To specify the exact circumstances of discovery of adrenal and extra-adrenal phaeochromocytoma.
  • MEDICAL: records of 201 patients with adrenal and extra-adrenal phaeochromocytoma who were diagnosed between 1973 and 2007 were analyzed.
  • Patients with incidentally detected phaeochromocytoma were significantly older (53.1+/-1.9 vs 47.0+/-1.3 years; P<0.05) and often had less blood pressure peaks (37.0 vs 70.7%; P<0.001) than patients in whom the diagnosis was suspected on clinical grounds.
  • Of phaeochromocytomas 94.4% were intra-adrenal tumours, of which 12.9% were bilateral.
  • Bilateral tumours were significantly smaller than unilateral tumours (36.6+/-14.7 vs 52.5+/-34.3 mm; P<0.05), whereas extra-adrenal tumours had a mean diameter of 52.6+/-28.7 mm.
  • Every adrenal incidentaloma should be investigated for the presence of phaeochromocytoma.

  • The diagnosis of a malignant pheochromocytoma (PC) can only be established by the presence of distant metastases, but a subset of apparently benign PCs develop metastases.
  • The reference consisted of laser microdissected tissue from normal adrenal medulla.
  • Comparative analysis by microarray of all ten PCs (benign/malignant) versus normal adrenal medulla revealed a more than twofold expression difference in 455/539 and 491/671 genes respectively.

  • [Title] Limited value of adrenal biopsy in the evaluation of adrenal neoplasm: a decade of experience.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the value of percutaneous adrenal biopsy in the evaluation of adrenal neoplasm.
  • PATIENTS: All adult patients undergoing image-guided adrenal biopsy from 1997 to 2007.
  • Eighty-eight biopsies (53.4%) were performed in patients with a prior diagnosis of cancer.
  • Forty-five (26.4%) were performed when imaging study results suggested previously undiagnosed cancer with a simultaneous adrenal metastasis.
  • Thirty (20.2%) were performed for isolated adrenal incidentalomas.
  • In patients with isolated adrenal incidentaloma, a radiology report recommended biopsy 33% of the time for characteristics inconsistent with benign adenoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Biopsy is unhelpful in patients with isolated adrenal incidentaloma.
  • The value of biopsy remains the diagnosis of metastatic carcinoma in patients with a nonadrenal primary malignancy, proven by the more than 70% positive rate in this group.

  • CONTEXT: Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors of predominantly adrenal origin that often produce and secrete catecholamines.
  • Malignancy occurs in a variable percentage of cases depending on genetic background and tumor location.
  • Definitive diagnosis relies on the detection of distant metastases.
  • Any present or new therapeutic approach must take into account the highly variable natural course of the disease.

  • INTRODUCTION: Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas are derived from neural crest cells and are localized mainly in adrenal medulla and sympathetic or parasympathetic ganglia.
  • Clinical presentation can sometimes be atypical and does not always allow proper diagnosis.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We analyzed DNA from 60 patients diagnosed and treated in the Centre of Oncology with a diagnosis of pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of our study show that genetic predisposition is frequent in chromaffin tissue tumours, which indicates that DNA analysis is necessary in every case, also because of possible atypical clinical presentation. (Pol J Endocrinol 2010; 61 (1): 43-48).

  • Patients with adrenal tumors are at risk of the consequences of tumor growth (including metastasis) and of hormone hypersecretion.
  • These tumors arise from tissues with distinct embryonic origins.
  • Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas arise from the adrenal medulla and produce catecholamines; they may be benign or malignant, and sporadic or familial.
  • Adrenal adenomas and carcinomas arise from the adrenal cortex.
  • Patients with adrenocortical tumors may develop ACTH-independent hypercortisolism, mineralocorticoid excess, and androgen hypersecretion.
  • The tumors are frequently large enough to provide material for biological studies in addition to diagnostic investigations.
  • In France many patients with hypersecretory tumors are referred to the Hypertension Unit of Georges Pompidou European Hospital, and to the Department of Endocrinology at Cochin Hospital, Paris.
  • In 1993, the heads of these departments created the COMETE network (COrtico et MEdullo-surrénale, les Tumeurs Endocrines).
  • The overall objective of COMETE is to promote basic and clinical research into adrenal tumors.
  • This implies - in cross-sectional studies: collecting adrenal tumors, maintaining a collection of tumor and leukocyte DNA samples, keeping a computerized record of relevant biological and clinical data, and distributing biological samples and bioclinical information anonymously to collaborating research laboratories; in prospective studies: ensuring indefinite follow-up of patients with tumors at risk of malignancy or recurrence, which means establishing and maintaining a cohort of patients with large adrenocortical tumors or carcinomas anda cohort of patients with pheochromocytomas or paragangliomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 6-(18)F-fluoro-l-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine ((18)F-DOPA) PET is a useful tool for the detection of certain neuroendocrine tumors, especially with the preadministration of carbidopa, an inhibitor of DOPA decarboxylase.
  • Whether carbidopa also improves (18)F-DOPA PET of adrenal pheochromocytomas and extraadrenal paragangliomas is unknown.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the sensitivity of (18)F-DOPA PET in the detection of paraganglioma and its metastatic lesions and to evaluate whether tracer uptake by the tumors is enhanced by carbidopa.
  • METHODS: Two patients with nonmetastatic adrenal pheochromocytoma, and 9 patients with extraadrenal abdominal paraganglioma (1 nonmetastatic, 8 metastatic), underwent whole-body CT, MRI, baseline (18)F-DOPA PET, and (18)F-DOPA PET with oral preadministration of 200 mg of carbidopa.
  • Carbidopa increased the mean (+/-SD) peak standardized uptake value in index tumor lesions from 6.4 +/- 3.9 to 9.1 +/- 5.6 (P = 0.037).
  • Pancreatic physiologic (18)F-DOPA uptake, which may mask adrenal pheochromocytoma, is blocked by carbidopa.
  • CONCLUSION: Carbidopa enhances the sensitivity of (18)F-DOPA PET for adrenal pheochromocytomas and extraadrenal abdominal paragangliomas by increasing the tumor-to-background ratio of tracer uptake.

  • BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) is the procedure of choice for surgical management of most adrenal tumors.
  • LA learning curve (LC) varies among surgeons and may be influenced by factors depending on surgeon, patient, and lesion peculiarities.
  • METHODS: Between August 1994 and August 2005, 241 LA were performed in our department.
  • The pre-operative variables evaluated were patient-related (age, gender, body mass index, co-morbidities) and disease-related (histology, size, and side of lesion).
  • Flank approached and bilateral procedures were excluded, while submesocolic LA, were collected separately.
  • Mean OpT for right and left LA was 83 and 109 min, respectively.
  • Based on surgical experience increase, the OpT and CR flattened their curves, roughly at 30 and 40 procedures for right and left LA, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Manifold factors may affect LC and outcome in LA.

  • [Title] Adrenal ganglioneuroma.
  • BACKGROUND: A 20-year-old man was referred after having been discovered a left adrenal incidentaloma.
  • Characteristics on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suggested the diagnosis of adrenal ganglioneuroma or carcinoma.
  • Pathological examination after adrenalectomy concluded it was an adrenal ganglioneuroma.
  • We studied the characteristics of adrenal ganglioneuroma.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed hormonal status, computed tomography and MRI features, and histological findings of our series of 8 adrenal ganglioneuromas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Even if many aggressive tumors share some of those radiological features, the presence of all or most of them must lead the clinician to consider the diagnosis of adrenal ganglioneuroma.

  • [Title] Unexpected histological findings of lesions diagnosed in the adrenal region in a series of 420 patients submitted to adrenal surgery. Review of our experience.
  • INTRODUCTION: The incidence of adrenal incidentalomas is reported to be up to 30% in the current literature; nevertheless, in some patients undergoing surgery, a final diagnosis of non-adrenal origin of the mass is performed.
  • In this paper we present our experience of 13 patients with unexpected histological findings of lesions diagnosed in the adrenal region.
  • Pre-operative diagnosis was: incidentaloma (34.0% of patients), Conn's adenoma (29.0%), Cushing's adenoma (13.9%), pheochromocytoma (8.8%), suspicious metastasis (7.3%), Cushing's disease (6.0%), other (1.0%).
  • RESULTS: Final histology revealed an unexpected diagnosis of non-adrenal origin of the mass in 13 patients (3.1%).
  • Histology demonstrated a benign neurogenic tumor in 10 patients.
  • In the other 3 patients diagnosis was respectively of lymphnode, hemangioma and a gastric metastasis of melanoma.
  • Mean operative time in this group was higher compared to laparoscopic resection for adrenal lesion (95.3 min vs 73.2 min).
  • CONCLUSION: A small percentage of our patients (3.1%) demonstrated unexpected findings of the lesion pre-operatively misinterpreted as an adrenal mass.
  • Despite a complete pre-operative assessment, adrenal lesions might reveal a different origin, increasing the surgical challenge as well as the morbidity for the patient.

  • [Title] Leiomyoma of the adrenal gland presenting as a non-functioning adrenal incidentaloma: case report and review of the literature.
  • A 31-year-old woman was incidentally found to have a large right adrenal mass by computed tomography imaging and underwent a workup that included endocrinological evaluation and positron emission tomography imaging.
  • Because of concern for adrenal cortical carcinoma, the patient underwent a successful right adrenalectomy.
  • The diagnosis of leiomyoma was supported by a panel of immunohistochemical stains.
  • Adrenal leiomyomas have been reported in the literature, although most are small and not preoperatively suspicious for malignancy.
  • This case illustrates that benign tumors such as leiomyomas, when large and heterogeneous on imaging, can clinically mimic adrenal cortical carcinomas and should be included in the differential diagnosis of adrenal incidentalomas.

  • CONTEXT: Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas may be malignant either at presentation or during recurrence, but the clinical course of malignant tumors is unpredictable.
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective was to analyze survival according to clinical characteristics at diagnosis of malignancy and the presence or absence of SDHB mutations.
  • SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: A total of 54 patients with malignant tumors were included.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The main outcome was the specific survival after the diagnosis of the first metastasis.
  • RESULTS: Germline mutations were identified in SDHB (n = 23, including 21 patients with apparent sporadic tumors) and VHL (n = 1) genes, and two patients had neurofibromatosis 1.
  • Patients were followed up from the diagnosis of primary tumor and from the diagnosis of the first metastasis to the present or to death with medians of 79 [interquartile range (IQR) 24; 190] and 39 [IQR 14; 94] months, respectively.
  • The 5-yr probability of survival after the diagnosis of the first metastasis was 0.55 (95% confidence interval 0.39-0.69).
  • Patients with SDHB mutations were younger, more frequently had extra-adrenal tumors, and had a shorter metanephrine excretion doubling time.
  • Therefore, SDHB genetic testing may be of prognostic value for such patients, even those with an apparent sporadic and/or benign presentation at diagnosis.

  • Magnetic resonance image revealed three sequential nodular masses (each 15 mm x 15 mm) in the right adrenal gland.
  • The three removed tumors appeared to have different characteristics.
  • Microscopic examination revealed that the upper and lower tumors were adrenocortical adenomas, and the middle tumor was a black adenoma.
  • Immunohistochemical staining for the enzymes involved in cortisol biosynthesis suggested that the upper tumor secreted aldosterone, whereas either or both of the two other tumors secreted cortisol.

  • Computed tomography revealed bilateral adrenal tumors and noradrenalin levels in serum and urine were elevated.
  • 131I-MIBG scintigraphy showed accumulation in bilateral adrenal glands.
  • Bilateral adrenalectomies and left nephrectomy were performed because tumor thrombus extended into the left renal vein, and pathological diagnosis was pheochromocytoma.
  • His sister had been diagnosed as VHL disease.
  • We diagnosed the patient as VHL disease because of the existence of cerebellar and spinal hemangioblastomas, bilateral pheochromocytomas, missense mutation and his family history.
  • This is the eleventh case of bilateral pheochromocytomas with VHL disease reported in Japanese literatures.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: Indications for laparoscopic adrenalectomy in our patients were as follows: pheochromocytoma in 28 patients (41.8%), aldosterone-producing adenoma in 15 (22.4%), pseudocyst in 6 (9.0%), Cushing syndrome (macronodular adrenocortical hyperplasia) in 5 (7.5%), nonfunctioning adenoma (incidentaloma) in 5 (7.5%), myelolipoma in 2 (3.0%), almost normal adrenal tissue in 2 (3.0%), adrenal cyst in 2 (3.0%), adenocarcinoma in 1 (1.4%), and schwannoma in 1 (1.4%).
  • CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a safe procedure in some adrenal tumors and a reasonable option for selected large adrenal tumors when complete resection is technically feasible and there is no evidence of local invasion.

  • Incidentally diagnosed, clinically asymptomatic adrenal masses (incidentaloma) have become more and more common problem in everyday clinical practice.
  • The prevalence of such tumors is 2.3% in autopsy series and 0.5-2% in computed tomography series.
  • The aim of the study was a clinical analysis of patients with adrenal incidentaloma, hospitalized in the Department of Internal and Metabolic Diseases of the Medical University of Silesia.
  • The tumor was located in the right adrenal gland in 13 patients (39.4%) and in the left adrenal gland in 16 patients (48.5%).
  • 4 patients (12.1%) demonstrated bilateral adrenal masses.
  • At least one of the tumor sizes was greater than 40 mm in 3 patients (9.1%).
  • CONCLUSION: Clinically asymptomatic adrenal tumors occurred more frequently in overweight or obese women, between 51-70 years old, with lipid disorders and hypertension.

  • [Title] Developing effective screening strategies in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) on the basis of clinical and sequencing data of German patients with MEN 1.
  • BACKGROUND: Multiple-endocrine-neoplasia-type-1 (MEN1) is an autosomal-dominant inherited disorder characterized by the combined occurrence of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT), gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP), adenomas of the pituitary gland (APA), adrenal cortical tumors (ADR) and other tumors.
  • As the tumors appear in an unpredictable schedule, uncertainty about screening programs is persisting.
  • RESULTS: A total of 683 tumors occurred consisting of 273 pHPT, 138 APA, 166 GEP, 57 ADR, 24 thymic- and bronchial-carcinoids as well as 25 neoplasms of other tissues.
  • CONCLUSION: In view of the morbidity and frequency in familial cases an effective screening programme should aim at an early diagnosis of GEP particularly when truncating, especially nonsense mutations are found.

  • [Title] Differential expression of the human somatostatin receptor subtypes sst1 to sst5 in various adrenal tumors and normal adrenal gland.
  • Somatostatin (SRIF) is a widely distributed peptide with growth-inhibiting effects in various tumors.
  • We investigated expression of the five ssts in various adrenal tumors and in normal adrenal gland.
  • Adrenal tissue surrounding the tumor was available for analysis in twenty-seven cases.
  • Expression of all five receptor subtypes was observed in RNA obtained from normal adrenal gland.
  • Furthermore, each receptor subtype was expressed in more than 50 % of all tumors analyzed.
  • No sst5 expression was found in PHEOs, while sst1 was present in nearly all of these tumors.
  • Differential expression of ssts in various adrenal tumors may point to new aspects in the pathogenesis of these adenomas.
  • New subtype specific analogues of SRIF may be used in the future depending on the type of adrenal tumor and receptor subtype expressed.

  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate a retrospective cohort of NB patients who underwent MIS resection of their primary tumors.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study of NB patients who underwent MIS resection of their primary tumors over a 3-year period was undertaken.
  • Six of the eight (75%) tumors were adrenal in origin and the remainder were located in the posterior mediastinum.
  • One stage 4 tumor was N-myc amplified.
  • All stage 4 patients experienced a >50% tumor volume cytoreduction in response to preoperative chemotherapy.
  • All eight patients were alive and disease-free at a median 18-month follow-up.
  • CONCLUSIONS: With appropriate preoperative case selection based on anatomic features, MIS tumor resection in patients with NB can be performed safely and effectively.

  • [Title] [11C]metomidate positron emission tomography of adrenocortical tumors in correlation with histopathological findings.
  • CONTEXT: Adrenal incidentalomas are common findings necessitating extensive laboratory work-up and repetitive radiological examinations.
  • OBJECTIVE: We evaluated 212 MTO-PET examinations in 173 patients to identify its role in the management of adrenal tumors.
  • PATIENTS: Patients who were operated or biopsied due to adrenal tumors had histopathological diagnoses of adrenocortical adenoma (n = 26), adrenocortical cancer (ACC; n = 13), adrenocortical hyperplasia (n = 8), pheochromocytoma (n = 6), metastasis (n = 3), and tumors of nonadrenal origin (n = 19).
  • The hypothesis that MTO-PET is of value in the management of adrenal tumors, especially incidentaloma, was stated before data collection.
  • Pheochromocytomas, metastases to the adrenal gland, and nonadrenal masses were all MTO negative.
  • SUV was higher in aldosterone-hypersecreting adenomas, and the SUV ratio between the tumor and the contralateral gland was significantly higher in all hormonally hypersecreting adenomas as well as in ACC.
  • CONCLUSION: MTO-PET is a specific and sensitive method for diagnosing adrenocortical tumors.
  • MTO-PET is useful in the imaging work-up of adrenal incidentalomas and may be beneficial for the examination of patients with primary aldosteronism or ACC.

  • The diagnosis post-presentation was delayed by 1 to 132 months.
  • Computed tomography and metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy were the most widely used means for tumour localisation (sensitivity, 100% and 87% respectively).
  • Approximately 65% of the patients had intra-adrenal tumours; 53% were on right side, 18% were bilateral.
  • CONCLUSION: Our series of patients with phaeochromocytomas commonly had a high frequency of normotension and extra-adrenal tumours.
  • A high index of clinical suspicion and appropriate biochemical investigations are necessary to make the diagnosis, especially for patients manifesting adrenal incidentaloma and extra-adrenal lesion.

  • [Title] Bilateral adrenal neuroblastoma and nephroblastoma occurring synchronously in a child with Fanconi's anemia and VACTERL syndrome.
  • The association between FA and solid pediatric tumors is extremely rare.
  • The authors report a rare case of VACTERL syndrome associated with FA and multiple solid pediatric tumors occurring in a very young girl.
  • Such association led quickly to the diagnosis of FA.
  • At age of 11 months, she developed simultaneously a renal tumor in a horseshoe kidney and bilateral adrenal tumors.
  • The left adrenal mass was removed, and partial nephrectomy was performed.
  • Histological analysis concluded to adrenal neuroblastoma and nephroblastoma.
  • We also evaluated the c-kit expression in these tumors to propose a therapeutic alternative to chemotherapy by oral agent STI-571 (Gleevec; Novartis, East Hanover, NJ).
  • Strong cytoplasmic immunostaining of c-kit was found in both tumors.
  • Unfortunately, she quickly developed a posterior cerebellar fossa tumor and died 1 month later.
  • This clinical situation is very rare but suggests that young patients with FA and solid pediatric tumors may belong to a particular subgroup of FA.
  • Further studies are necessary to test if STI-571 treatment could be efficient in such patients with pediatric tumors.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the adrenal gland with unusual immunophenotype: a potential diagnostic problem and a brief review of endocrine organ solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Solitary fibrous tumor was initially thought to be a pleura-based tumor.
  • Nonetheless, a primary involvement of the endocrine organs is rare, and in this report, we detail an instance where the tumor affected the adrenal gland of a 71-year-old Arab man.
  • On histology, besides the typical morphologic features seen in solitary fibrous tumor, the neoplasm also exhibited unusual features on immunohistochemistry such as positive staining for cytokeratin AE1/3 and calponin in conjunction with diffuse expression for S-100.
  • The genetic tests for t(X:18) as seen in synovial sarcoma were negative, and the overall histological appearance favored a diagnosis of solitary fibrous tumor.
  • To the best of our knowledge, this report represents the fifth case of a solitary fibrous tumor primarily occurring in the adrenal gland.
  • The differential diagnoses of this neoplasm in our case and a brief summary of solitary fibrous tumor primarily involving the various endocrine organs are presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • All subjects were re-examined with a complete clinical work-up after a mean follow-up period of 86 +/- 48 months, including blood pressure readings (<140/90 mmHg defined as normal), endocrine adrenal function, and specific medication.
  • One patient revealed a contralateral aldosterone-secreting adrenal adenoma during the subsequent endocrine and imaging examination 44 months after the first operation.
  • Despite normalized plasma-aldosterone concentration (PAC), plasma-renin-activity (PRA) and serum potassium levels, a long-lasting insufficiently treated hypertension due to the delayed diagnosis in patients with PA may explain the persistent blood pressure elevation, indicating the necessity of a life-long, regular control of the blood pressure and antihypertensive medication.

  • The three tumors, incidentally discovered, proved to be non-functioning (normal secretion of catecholamines and of other neuroendocrine peptides, glucocorticoids, mineralcorticoids and androgens).
  • Accordingly, the patient showed no sign or symptom of endocrine disease.
  • Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) demonstrated a typical adenomatous lesion on the left adrenal gland with precocious uptake of the radiotracer on radioidine (131I)-norcholesterol adrenal scintigraphy, while the controlateral gland showed hyperdensity on CT, hyperintensity on MR and no uptake at adrenal scintigraphy.
  • The right adrenal gland was surgically removed and, microscopically, pheochromocytoma and ganglioneuroma areas appeared intermixed without a predominant component.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Interventional ultrasound for adrenal masses.
  • PURPOSE: To determine the value of interventional ultrasound (US) for adrenal masses, especially incidentally discovered adrenal masses.
  • METHODS: Demographic, clinical, and pathological data were reviewed for eight patients who underwent percutaneous US-guided puncture or biopsy for adrenal masses from September 1994 through March 2002 in our institute.
  • RESULTS: US-guided intervention was successfully performed for seven patients: two with adrenal cysts, two with adrenocortical adenomas, and three with metastatic adrenal tumors (one from prostate cancer, one from lung cancer, and one from renal cell carcinoma).
  • The remaining patient had bilateral adrenal masses, and a biopsy specimen could not be obtained because safe puncture was difficult.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Interventional US using the color Doppler method for adrenal masses is a useful procedure for safe puncture to reveal the orientation of adjacent viscera and blood vessels at the puncture site and to avoid complications including hemorrhage and pneumothorax.
  • In addition, pathological examination of specimens obtained by percutaneous biopsy or fine needle aspiration is useful for avoiding unnecessary surgery in patients with metastatic adrenal masses.

  • [Title] ACR Appropriateness Criteria on incidentally discovered adrenal mass.
  • For patients without a history of malignancy, most small (less than 3 cm) incidentally discovered adrenal masses are benign, and extensive and costly workup is usually not justified.
  • For incidentalomas from 3 to 5 cm in size, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, 2-[(18)F]fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography, adrenal biopsy, or surgery can be considered.
  • For patients with histories of malignancy, incidentally discovered adrenal masses are more often malignant, and thus even smaller adrenal lesions are suspect.
  • Adrenal biopsy should be reserved for cases in which the results of noninvasive techniques are equivocal.

  • Adrenocortical cancer (ACC) is a rare tumor with a poor prognosis.
  • By contrast, benign adrenocortical tumors are frequent, underlying the importance of a correct diagnosis of malignancy of such tumors.
  • ACC can be diagnosed by the investigation of endocrine signs of steroid excess, symptoms due to tumor growth or an adrenal incidentaloma.
  • Imaging by CT-scan or MRI shows a large heterogeneous tumor with a low fat content.
  • Careful pathological investigation with the assessment of the Weiss score is important for the diagnosis of malignancy.
  • Tumors localized to the adrenal gland (McFarlane stages 1 and 2) have a better outcome than invasive and metastatic tumors (stages 3 and 4).
  • Tumor removal by a specialized team is crucial for treatment and should always aim at complete removal.
  • In patients with metastatic or progressive disease, medical treatment is started with mitotane that requires a close monitoring of its blood level.
  • Local treatment (radiofrequency, chemoembolization, and radiation therapy) can have some indications for metastatic disease.
  • In patients with disease progression cytotoxic chemotherapy can be used.
  • These progresses came mainly from the study of the genetics of ACC, both at the germline level in rare familial diseases, and at the somatic level by the study of molecular alterations in sporadic tumors.

  • [Title] Differential diagnosis and laparoscopic treatment of adrenal pheochromocytoma and ganglioneuroma.
  • BACKGROUND: Adrenal ganglioneuroma is a rare adrenal pathogenic disease with difficult differential diagnosis from adrenal pheochromocytoma.
  • Currently, very limited literature is available to allow a differential diagnosis of these two conditions from each other.
  • This study aimed to evaluate the clinical profile, differential diagnosis and surgical treatments of both conditions.
  • METHODS: Clinical characteristics of 36 patients with adrenal pheocheomocytoma and 18 patients with adrenal ganglioneuroma were analyzed.
  • Neither (131)I-MIBG nor endocrine hormone tests were available in 9 cases of asymptomatic adrenal ganglioneuroma with tumor size less than 4 cm and there were negative findings from contrast enhanced CT scans.
  • RESULTS: Te mean age of patients in the adrenal ganglioneuroma group was 41.2 years (16 - 67 year) and in the adrenal pheochromocytoma patients 38 years (17 - 74 year).
  • Contrast enhanced CT showed that the foci were intensified in 5 cases (27.8%) of adrenal ganglioneuroma and there were obvious contrast indications in 30 (83.3%) of the pheochromocytoma.
  • Catecholamine levels in a 24-hour urine sample were normal in 4 patients with adrenal ganglioneuroma and increased in 36 (100%) cases with adrenal pheochromocytoma. (131)I-MIBG nuclear scan showed negative results in 4 patients (100%) with adrenal ganglioneuroma and positive results in 25 (96.2%) with adrenal pheochromocytom.
  • Laparoscopy for adrenal tumors was performed through a transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach during a follow-up period of (43 +/- 6) months, and all cases survived well.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CT, urinary catecholamine and (131)I-MIBG are standard and efficient tools for differential diagnosis of adrenal ganglioneuroma from pheochromocytoma.
  • Laparoscopic surgery can be performed through a transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach depending on the finding of CT scans.

  • [Title] ErbB-2 induces bilateral adrenal pheochromocytoma formation in mice.
  • Pheochromocytoma (PCC) is a rare catecholamine-producing tumor that arises from the adrenal medulla and is often familial.
  • ErbB-2/Her2/Neu is a growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase that is frequently overexpressed in tumors and there is clinical evidence suggesting that enhanced ErbB-2 growth factor receptor signaling may play a role in PCC.
  • In the present study, ectopic expression of an activated ErbB-2 transgene resulted in bilateral adrenal PCC.
  • Analyses of tumor samples and normal adrenal tissue revealed that levels of the Pten tumor suppressor protein were greatly reduced in PCCs, while levels of the cell cycle regulatory protein cyclin D1 were usually increased.
  • In addition, levels of phospo-AKT were increased in PCCs versus normal adrenal tissue.
  • These data establish that increased ErbB-2 growth factor receptor signaling in the adrenal medulla can lead to PCC through combined influences on Pten, AKT andcyclin D1.
