Abstract

Bilateral nonfunctioning adrenal cortical carcinoma is an extremely rare disease with poor prognosis. We report a case of asynchronous bilateral nonfunctioning adrenal cotical carcinoma. The patient was a 55 year-old man who had complained of discomfort in the right upper quadrant and flank area. There was no endocrinological abnomaliries. Abdominal CT revealed about 9.5 x 7.0 cm sized right adrenal mass. Under the impression of nonfunctioning adrenal cortical carcinorna, right radical adrenalectomy was performed. After 1 year from operation, 5.0 x 7.0 x 6.0 cm sized new mass was detected in the left adrenal gland with metastasis to the peritoneum.
