incidentalome adrenal

Antoine Tabarin
Adrenal incidentalomas are found in approximately 2-3% of abdominal CT-scan examinations. A key issue is to determine whether the incidentaloma is neoplastic or responsible for endocrine hypersecretion, two situations in which surgical excision is recommended. Candidate incidentalomas for surgery include hypersecreting tumors (pheochromocytomas, Cushing's adenoma, Conn's adenoma) and adrenocortical carcinomas. The majority of adrenal incidentalomas are non-secreting cortical adenomas and lesions to remove account for less than 5% of adrenal incidentalomes...

INTRODUCTION: Frequent use of modern imaging methods (such as ultrasound, CT and MRI) results in high incidence of accidentally discovered adrenal mass. Adrenal incidentalomas are accidentally discovered adrenal tumors by imaging methods without any prior suspicion of adrenal disease. Some studies have shown decreased insulin sensitivity in patients with adrenal incidentaloma. OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to assess the insulin sensitivity in patients with adrenal incidentalom a...

PURPOSE: Pheochromocytoma diagnosis uses the localization of the tumour, particularly thanks to MIBG scintigraphy. The aims of this study were to evaluate the sensibility and specificity of this exam, his opportunity towards clinical and biological profile of patients with pheochromocytoma suspicion in Internal Medicine and towards others techniques of imaging. We tried to define the most effective and least expensive approach of pheochromocytoma diagnosis. METHOD: This study was carried out over 15 years period on 80 patients in Internal Medicine who underwent 123I MIBG scintigraphy for pheochromocytoma suspicion...
