Renal and adrenal masses containing fat at MRI: Proposed nomenclature by the society of abdominal radiology disease-focused panel on renal cell carcinoma.

J Magn Reson Imaging 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

This article proposes a consensus nomenclature for fat-containing renal and adrenal masses at MRI to reduce variability, improve understanding, and enhance communication when describing imaging findings. The MRI appearance of "macroscopic fat" occurs due to a sufficient number of aggregated adipocytes and results in one or more of: 1) intratumoral signal intensity (SI) loss using fat-suppression techniques, or 2) chemical shift artifact of the second kind causing linear or curvilinear India-ink (etching) artifact within or at the periphery of a mass at macroscopic fat-water interfaces. "Macroscopic fat" is most commonly observed in adrenal myelolipoma and renal angiomyolipoma (AML) and only rarely encountered in other adrenal cortical tumors and renal cell carcinomas (RCC).

European Society of Endocrinology Clinical Practice Guidelines on the management of adrenocortical carcinoma in adults, in collaboration with the European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tumors

Eur J Endocrinol 2018 10 1;179(4):G1-G46. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Clinical and Biological Sciences, Internal Medicine, San Luigi Hospital, University of Turin, Orbassano, Italy

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare and in most cases steroid hormone-producing tumor with variable prognosis. The purpose of these guidelines is to provide clinicians with best possible evidence-based recommendations for clinical management of patients with ACC based on the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) system. We predefined four main clinical questions, which we judged as particularly important for the management of ACC patients and performed systematic literature searches: (A) What is needed to diagnose an ACC by histopathology? (B) Which are the best prognostic markers in ACC? (C) Is adjuvant therapy able to prevent recurrent disease or reduce mortality after radical resection? (D) What is the best treatment option for macroscopically incompletely resected, recurrent or metastatic disease? Other relevant questions were discussed within the group. Read More

Mitotane in the treatment of childhood adrenocortical carcinoma: a potent endocrine disruptor.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2018 23;2018. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Starship Children's Health, Auckland District Health Board, Auckland, New Zealand.

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) during childhood is a rare malignant tumor that frequently results in glucocorticoid and/or androgen excess. When there are signs of microscopic or macroscopic residual disease, adjuvant therapy is recommended with mitotane, an adrenolytic and cytotoxic drug. In addition to the anticipated side effect of adrenal insufficiency, mitotane is known to cause gynecomastia and hypothyroidism in adults. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Aug 16;2018. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Urology, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

In patients with prostate cancer, metastases mostly develop in bone, lung, liver, pleura and adrenal glands. Prostate carcinoma metastases to the ureter are very rare, and the peritoneum is an even rarer site of prostate metastases. We present two cases of ureteral metastases of prostate cancer, of which one patient also developed malignant ascites and peritoneal metastases. Read More

Hypertension and severe hypokalaemia associated with ectopic ACTH production.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Aug 16;2018. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Internal Medicine Department, Hospital Garcia de Orta, Almada, Portugal.

Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secretion represents 5%-10% of cases of Cushing's syndrome (CS), and approximately 50%-60% of these arise from neuroendocrine lung tumours, including small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). We report a 42-year-old man admitted with hypertension, metabolic alkalosis and severe hypokalaemia. On physical examination, centripetal obesity with 'moon face' and 'buffalo's hump' were identified, and wheezing on left lung was heard. Read More

European Society of Endocrinology Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Management of Adrenocortical Carcinoma in Adults, in collaboration with the European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tumors.

Eur J Endocrinol 2018 Jul 24. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

M Terzolo, San Luigi Hospital, University of Turino, Orbassano, Italy.

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare and in most cases steroid hormone producing tumor with variable prognosis. The purpose of these guidelines is to provide clinicians with best possible evidence-based recommendations for clinical management of patients with ACC based on the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) system. We predefined four main clinical questions, which we judged as particularly important for the management of ACC patients and performed systematic literature searches: (A) What is needed to diagnose an ACC by histopathology? (B) Which are the best prognostic markers in ACC? (C) Is adjuvant therapy able to prevent recurrent disease or reduce mortality after radical resection? (D) What is the best treatment option for macroscopically incompletely resected, recurrent or metastatic disease? Other relevant questions were discussed within the group. Read More
