2,384 Possible Causes for Calcitonin Increased, CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Ventricular Fibrillation

  • Pheochromocytoma

    If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[web.archive.org] Cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial and ventricular fibrillation, may occur because of excessive plasma catecholamine levels.[emedicine.com] CT scan showed previously undiagnosed large right adrenal mass (5.9cm).
