Non-hormonal adrenocortical adenoma with oncocytoma-like appearances

Hinyokika Kiyo. 1986 May;32(5):757-63.


We report a case of non-hormonal adrenocortical adenoma. The tumor was removed en block with the adrenal gland. The specimen was 5.0 X 4.5 X 3.0 cm, weighed 30 g and was solid. Histologically, this tumor had an oncocytoma-like appearance. However, as there is no concept of oncocytoma in connection with adrenocortical adenoma, this case was diagnosed as adrenocortical adenoma. A case with such histological findings has never been reported.
