Solitary fibrous tumor mimicking adrenal tumor concomitant w
A 62-year-old woman with bilateral adrenal tumors was referred to our department in 2008. She had elevated urinary normetanephrine. Metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy showed uptake in the right adrenal gland. The tumor in the right adrenal gland was 5 cm in diameter. The patient underwent right adrenalectomy and was diagnosed with pheochromocytoma. The left tumor was 3 cm in diameter and diagnosed as benign using imaging. However, its size gradually increased to 10 cm over 7 years after surgery. The catecholamine hormones were within normal range. The patient underwent the tumor resection and left partial adrenalectomy. A steroid cover was given temporarily after surgery for prophylactic purposes. The histological diagnosis was solitary fibrous tumor. There was no recurrence 2 years after surgery.
