Adrenal myelolipoma associated with hyperandrogenemia
International Journal of Urology, 07/16/2012
Su HC et al. – The patient was a 34–year–old Chinese woman with a history of growth retardation, virilization and lumbago. Adrenal imaging showed a circular soft tissue mass in the right adrenal gland. Endocrine examinations showed increased levels of plasma testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, significantly lower levels of follicle–stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, with other biochemical parameters being basically normal. After a histopathological study confirming the mass to be an adrenal myelolipoma, the patient was managed with a right adrenalectomy and then recovered.
