"Suprarenal adenoma"

Hana Jedlickova, Veronika Durčanská, Vladimír Vašků
Dear Editor, Scleroderma associated with neoplasia is rare, with only a small number of cases reported. We describe 4 patients with paraneoplastic scleroderma who were treated at the I. Department of Dermatovenereology, St. Anna Hospital, during the period between 2004 and 2014. The patients were diagnosed with cholangiogenic carcinoma, endometrial carcinoma, prostatic adenocarcinoma, and adenoma of the suprarenal gland. In the case of concurrent scleroderma and tumor, four situations may occur: they can develop independently of each other; scleroderma may be induced by the tumor; the tumor can develop in the scleroderma; or the tumor can be induced by immunosuppressive therapy...

OBJECTIVES: there are indications that patients with a mitochondrial disorder (MID) develop malignomas or benign tumors more frequently than the general population. The aims of the study were to find out if the prevalence of tumors is actually increased in MID-patients and which of the malignomas or benign tumors are the most frequent. METHODS: The charts of MID-patients were retrospectively evaluated for the presence of malign or benign tumors. MID was diagnosed according to the modified Walker-criteria...

BACKGROUND: Primary aldosteronism is one of the most common forms of secondary arterial hypertension. Adrenalectomy is effective in patients with proven unilateral hypersecretion of aldosterone whereas pharmacotherapy is indicated in bilateral forms of the disease. We can meet the opinion that in patients with confirmed primary aldosteronism and finding ofsuprarenal adenoma > or = 1 cm on computed tomography (CT) scanning, adrenalectomy can be recommended without further investigation...

The retroperitoneal bronchogenic cyst is an extremely rare anomaly. During the examination of an 18-year-old female patient due to her extreme thinness, the abdominal ultrasound and later the CT indicated as an accidental finding--a left side adrenal/suprarenal adenoma, which turned out to be hormonally inactive. But while we were doing a laparoscopic surgical intervention we found a 6-8-cm cyst in the retroperitoneum, between the greater curvature and the spleen. It contained light grey, mucinous liquid. The left suprarenal gland had normal size and appearance...

We report a case of a 68-year-old patient, admitted with diagnosis of aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta to the Department of Cardiac Surgery, where he underwent percutaneous endovascular application of 4 endoprostheses in the descending thoracic aorta. After antibiotic prophylaxis and hemodynamic stabilization, the patient was admitted to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Unit for the management of the of postoperative course and undergo a program of cardiac rehabilitation. Five days following admission and before starting physical training, the patient developed fever associated with neutrophil leukocytosis, strong activation of inflammatory markers and sideropenic anemia, compatible with post-implantation inflammatory syndrome...

PURPOSE: Peliosis of the spleen is very rare disease diagnosed mainly histologically. The ethiopathogenesis is still unknown and various factors can play the important role (steroids, chemotherapy, chronic infection, hematology disease etc.). Authors present the case of peliosis of the spleen which was combined with suprarenal adenoma. METHOD: The splenectomy for the large spleen with suspicion from lymphoma was done in hypertonic patient with normocytic normochromic anaemia...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of hypertension (HT) in patients with Cushing's syndrome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We studied 23 patients with Cushing's syndrome, 17 women (mean +/- SD age = 42.8 +/- 15.6 years) and 6 men (mean +/- SD age = 34.8 +/- 10.2 years). The etiologies were: 16-Cushing's disease, 3-suprarenal adenoma, 2-suprarenal carcinoma and 2-iatrogenic. Blood pressure (BP) was measured at least three times and we consider hypertension when systolic BP > or = 140 mmHg and/or diastolic BP > or = 90 mmHg...

It is described the case of a patient with Ovarian Cystadenoma in whom a 3.5 cm nodular lesion was accidentally detected in her left suprarenal gland. She had no signs of hypercortisolism or any other suprarenal pathology and was symptomless. Determinations in the urine of 24 hours of Cortisol, Adrenaline and Noradrenaline, 17-ketosteroids and Tetrahydroaldosterone were normal. Daily rhythm and plasmatic determinations of ACTH, cortisol and 11-deoxycortisol were normal. The Dexamethasone suppression test was also normal...

We report two patients with arterial hypertension (AHT) secondary to Conn's disease and cerebral vascular accident (CVA). Both had histories of long-standing AHT that had been poorly controlled with drugs, though no complications had developed up to the time of presentation. One CVA was a hemorrhage in the right capsular-lenticular region and the other was a cerebral ischemic infarction. Blood tests done upon admission found low potassium levels. The final clinical-pathological diagnosis was primary hyperaldosteronism secondary to suprarenal adenoma...

A rare case of primary hyperaldosteronism due to corticosuprarenal carcinoma is presented. The case was treated by suprarenalectomy and is currently under antiblastic treatment with mitotane (o-p'DDD). The clinical and endocrinological elements for differential diagnosis from the much more common suprarenal adenomas are examined in particular detail.

In this work we describe a case of Conn's syndrome caused by a suprarenal adenoma in a sixty-one year female. The patient had come to our observation because of severe hypertension and hypokalemia. Primary aldosteronism resulting from the secretion of excessive amounts of aldosterone caused by autonomous hyperfunction of the adrenal cortex usually by a solitary adenoma. In most series of unselected patients, it is found in fewer than 0.5% of hypertensives. In our study we demonstrated the circadian changes of arterial blood pressure but we failed to demonstrate the presence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as recently emphasized in the literature...
