Estradiol-secreting adrenal oncocytoma in a 31-year old male
Oncocytic adrenocortical tumors (OAT) are rare and often are non-functional. Authors report a unique case of an estradiol-secreting adrenal oncocytoma in a 31-year-old male discovered upon an infertility and gynecomastia work-up. After resection of the 9 cm adrenal mass, the patient's estradiol levels normalized from 83.2 pg/ml to 19.0 pg/ml. Gonadotropins and serum dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate also normalized. This case report adds to the world's literature and underscores the central role of adrenal surgery in managing these rare solid neoplasms.
