1,258 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Ectopic ACTH Syndrome, Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Pheochromocytoma

    […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[] If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[] Both ectopic ACTH syndrome and ectopic CRH syndrome should be considered in patients presenting with ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome caused by extrapituitary diseases.[]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Fig 2 [ 18 F]Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)–computed tomography (CT) scan.[] […] production of ACTH or ADH Lambert-Eaton syndrome Histology stain positive for enolase, chromogranin, and synaptophysin neuroendocrine markers Kulchitsky cells small, dark[] However, intense hypermetabolic activity in muscles of the abdominal wall was noted.[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Computer tomography (CT) scan showed a solid right renal lesion, multiple liver metastases, florid chest, lymphadenopathy in left supraclavicular region and a right adrenal[] In addition, the patient had 2 hypermetabolic uterine leiomyomas.[] This case suggests that Castleman's disease should be considered as a rare differential diagnosis in patients with a hypervascular and hypermetabolic renal lesion.[]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing Syndrome

    […] showing no lateralization Click here to view Figure 6: F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography-Showing well defined heterogeneously enhancing hypermetabolic[] Surprisingly, in our patient CT scan and PET denied tumoral nodules in the most common sites of ectopic ACTH secrection [4], but showed a large adrenal mass suggestive for[] A recent review of ectopic ACTH syndrome cases suggests the preferred test to differentiate Cushing's disease from ectopic ACTH syndrome is inferior petrosal sinus sampling[]

  • Ectopic ACTH Syndrome

    Surprisingly, in our patient CT scan and PET denied tumoral nodules in the most common sites of ectopic ACTH secrection [4], but showed a large adrenal mass suggestive for[] […] patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome.[] The F-18 FDG PET CT showed a focal hypermetabolic lesion on the left side of the thyroid gland suggesting malignancies, a less intense hypermetabolic lesion on the right side[]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    An abdominal computerized tomographic (CT) scan during her work-up showed a right adrenal mass consistent with myelolipoma.[] Liddle GW, Givens JR, Nicholson WE, Island DP: The ectopic ACTH syndrome. Cancer Res 1965;25:1057–1061.[] Repeat CT scan imaging 3 years after diagnosis showed no growth of the adrenal mass with a 60% washout after contrast.[]

(2008) Pulmonary typical carcinoid tumor and liver metastasis with hypermetabolism on 18-fluorodeoxyglucose PET: a case report.[] […] with ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secretion, and symptoms of acromegaly with ectopic secretion of growth-hormone releasing factor.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    […] in contrast to malignant hyperthermia which is characterized by a hypermetabolic reaction associated with hyperthermia and hypercontracted stiff muscles.[] Adrenal imaging with computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a low-density mass measuring 2.1 cm in diameter in the left adrenal (Figure 2 ).[] […] in patients presenting with hypokalemia and ectopic ACTH syndrome.[]

  • Esophageal Carcinoma

    PET/CT is limited in its ability to differentiate hypermetabolic metastatic disease from acute/chronic inflammatory conditions, and this must be considered during interpretation[]
