ABSTRACT
Adrenal tumors are cancerous or non-cancerous growths on the adrenal glands. It can originate from the cortex or the medulla, and may or may not have the capacity to secrete hormones. We report a case of a 76-year-old man who was diagnosed with an adrenal mass during abdominal pain investigation. His biochemical profile and magnetic resonance images are compatible with adrenocortical carcinoma, while the pathology reports are compatible with liposarcoma. So far, to the best of our knowledge, there is no report on steroid- secreting tumors.
ÖZET
Adrenal tümörler, adrenal bezlerdeki kanseröz veya nonkanseröz büyümelerdir. Korteks veya medulladan kaynaklanabilirler ve hormon salgılama kapasitesine sahip olabilir veya olmayabilirler. Burada, karın ağrısı muayenesi sırasında adrenal kitle tanısı konan 76 yaşında bir erkek olgu sunduk. Olgunun biyokimyasal profili ve manyetik rezonans görüntüleri adrenokortikal karsinom ile patoloji raporları liposarkom ile uyumlu idi. Bildiğimiz kadarıyla, şimdiye kadar steroid salgılayan tümörler hakkında bir olgu sunumu bulunmamaktadır.
