Fancellu, Alessandro and Pinna, Antonio <1963- > and Porcu, Alberto (2014) Feminizing adrenocortical carcinoma with distant metastases: can surgery be considered? Clinics and practice, Vol. 4 , [e]651. ISSN 2039-7275. eISSN 2039-7283. Article.
Functioning adrenocortical carcinomas are rare diseases with dismal prognosis. A 41-yearold man presenting with gynecomastia had a giant feminizing adrenocortical carcinoma at stage IV. Although surgical resection was controversial, we removed the primary tumor to reduce the mass effects. He lived for 12 months with an acceptable quality of life. Gynecomastia may be the first sign of feminizing adrenal malignancies. Surgery may ameliorate the quality of life in selected patients with metastatic disease.
