DI MARTINO-ORTIZ, Beatriz et al. ADRENOCORTICAL ONCOCYTIC CARCINOMA. AN EXTRAORDINARY CASE REPORT. Rev. Cir. Parag. [online]. 2018, vol.42, n.2, pp.34-37. ISSN 2307-0420.

Although at present it is possible to detect with modern imaging techniques a good number of adrenal tumors that in the past went unnoticed clinically and hormonally, evidencing adrenal oncocytic tumors is still a rarity to this day. Most of the described cases have a benign behavior and are hormonally inactive and until this publication there are few reports of tumors in this location that meet histological criteria of malignancy. We present a new case of oncocyticcorticosuprarenal tumor with signs of malignancy and we discuss its differential, clinical and treatment diagnosis.

Keywords : adrenal gland; oncocytoma; oncocytic carcinoma; adrenocortical carcinoma.
