Kim, Kim, Baek, Lee, Kim, Min, Kim, and Kim: A Virilizing Adrenal Cortical Tumor in a Child


Adrenal cortical tumors are rare in adults and children. Most are malignant and functional. The principal clinical features are virilization, Cushing's syndrome, hyperaldosteronism and feminization. Recently, we treated a case of virilizing adrenal cortical tumor in a 26 month-old boy. The diagnosis was made by hormone assay, abdominal CT and tissue pathology. Right adrenalectomy was successful performed. Pathologic examination revealed an adrenal cortical adenoma with vascular invasion.
