Abstract

We report a case of adrenocortical tumor that coexisted with paragangliomas. A 35-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of left upper abdominal pain. A palm-sized mass was palpated at left upper quadrant. Hormonal studies revealed the features of pheochromocytoma. An emergency operation was performed because hemorrhage of the tumor was suspected. A 10 cm diameter ruptured mass was found in the left adrenal area and other tumors were also noted adjacent to inferior vena cava (IVC). The pathologic report revealed that the adrenal mass was an adrenocortical tumor with hemorrhagic necrosis and that the tumors adjacent to IVC were paragangliomas. This was the first case of adrenocortical tumor with paragangliomas in our Medline search result, hence we report the case with a review of the literature.
