Abstract

Solitary adrenal metastasis is often difficult to distinguish from benign adrenal tumor using only plain computed tomography CT scanning. We describe a solitary left adrenal gland mass in a patient who had undergone simultaneous gastrectomy and right nephrectomy for advanced gastric cancer and renal cell carcinoma RCC, respectively. Contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasonography CE-EUS findings indicated a hypervascular adrenal mass, and EUS-guided fine needle aspiration EUS-FNA revealed clear cell carcinoma. Adrenalectomy confirmed metastatic clear cell carcinoma of the kidney.
