AbstractAbstract PDF
Adrenocortical carcinoma is often functional and presents with signs and symptoms of adrenal steroid hormone excess. Adrenal insufficiency secondary to bilateral adrenocortical carcinoma is a particularly rare complication. We recently encountered a case of bilateral adrenocortical carcinoma complicated by adrenal insufficiency. A 52-year-old male was transferred to this hospital complaining of general weakness and weight loss. A bilateral adrenal mass was detected on abdomen CT. Plasma cortisol and aldosterone failed to rise during the rapid ACTH stimulation test. The CT-guided adrenal biopsy revealed findings consistent with adrenocortical carcinoma. Left hemiparesis was developed and brain metastasis was detected via brain MRI. Despite the application of gamma knife surgery and chemotherapy, the disease progressed and the patient died.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Metastatic thyroid cancer is uncommon but must be distinguished from primary thyroid cancer because of the differences in management and prognosis. Although renal cell carcinoma is one of the most common tumors that metastasize to the thyroid gland, such a case has never been reported in Korea. We describe the first case of metastatic renal cell carcinoma in the thyroid gland. A 66-year-old man presented with a neck mass detected about 6 weeks previously. He had undergone left nephrectomy due to renal cell carcinoma 8 years before and had remained disease-free thereafter. Computed tomography of the neck showed a 5 cm-sized thyroid mass. Fine needle aspiration cytology revealed some malignant cells containing intranuclear inclusions which were assumed to be papillary thyroid carcinoma. The patient underwent total thyroidectomy. Histologic diagnosis of the thyroid mass was metastatic renal cell carcinoma and further evaluation with chest computed tomography showed two enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes suggesting metastases. The previous history of malignancy should be scrutinized when managing a thyroid mass in patients with a prior or concomitant malignancy, and the possibility of metastasis should be carefully considered.
