Abstract

A 65 year-old man visited the outpatient clinic of internal medicine complaining of fever and upper abdominal pain. Bilateral adrenal tumors were detected by CT scan and ultrasonography without any hormonal abnormalities. The diagnosis was bilateral primary non-functioning adrenal tumors because there was no tumor except adrenals with the detailed examinations. Then we are informed about the patient and he was transferred for the surgery.
Cortisol was administrated because adrenal insufficiency was observed before surgery. Right adrenalectomy was performed after the recovery of patient status with cortisol.
The pathological diagnosis was malignant lymphoma (diffuse large, B cell type). The patient was getting worse and dead 15 days after the surgery.
