Methods 12 cases of adrenogenital syndrome,3 male and 9 female,have been admitted and treated from 1981 to 1996.There were 6 cases of adrenocortical adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and 6 cases of adrenocortical carcinoma. In addition,a total of 264 cases reported in China were reviewed.
Ten cases of adrenal cortical carcinoma, 6 functional and 4 nonfunctional were treated surgically during the period from 1978 to 1993. The functional carcinoma usually had typical clinical features, such as Cushing's syndrome,the adrenogenital syndrome etc.
Results: The functional carcinoma usually showed typical clinical features such as Cushing's syndrome, primary aldosteronism, and adrenogenital syndrome. A definite diagnosis can be made by the measurements of urine 17 hydrosteroid,cortisol, aldosterone, CT and B ultrasonography.
Methods:Adrenocortical neoplasms were diagnosed by ultrsonography in 81 patients. Among them 33 Cushing syndrome adenomas,4 adenocarcinomas, 31 aldosteronomas,7 adrenogenital syndrome adrenocortical adenocarcinomas and 6 functionless adenomas were confirmed by surgery and pathology.
