19 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Hematuria, Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Pheochromocytoma

    We present two cases of bladder pheochromocytoma, one of them presented with vague abdominal pain and the other with hematuria.[] If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[] […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    These tumors demonstrate a slight female predominance and can present either incidentally or with symptoms, commonly flank pain and hematuria.[] The follow-up 18F-FDG PET/CT scan showed a nearly complete resolution of the previously detected adrenal mass, with very low tracer uptake and a decrease in its functional[] Multiple hypermetabolic pulmonary metastases were also noted.[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Tumor is presented with characteristic findings of flank pain, gross hematuria, and palpable mass.[] 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.[]

  • Renal Metastasis

    The man underwent radical nephrectomy (to prevent hematuria), splenectomy and biopsies in liver and small intestine.[] CT scan showing bilateral adrenal masses ( asterisks ) with associated tumor thrombus in the renal veins and inferior vena cava ( arrowheads ).[] Restaging PET-CT study, 4 months after her last chemotherapy, demonstrates a hypermetabolic soft-tissue mass in the inferior pole of the right kidney.[]

  • Adrenal Gland Metastasis

    Other symptoms, including hematuria, were not present. The patient had a medical history of spondylolisthesis, osteoporosis, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.[] (a) US scan shows a septated cystic mass of the right adrenal gland (arrows). (b) Contrast material-enhanced CT scan shows a lobulated cystic mass with calcified septa.[] The PET/CT revealed a nodular hypermetabolic focus located on the left adrenal gland, measuring 2.5 2.6 2.8 cm, and the maximum standardized uptake value was 3.9 ( Fig. 1[]

  • Pulmonary Clear Cell Tumor

    […] department due to a clinical picture with onset 2 months previously of dry cough, weight loss (10 kg), asthenia and anorexia, pain in the right lumbar region and intermittent hematuria[] Contrast-enhanced CT scan of the thorax showed the existence of a mass in the left lung vertex involving the region of the aortic-pulmonary window with a site of osseous metastasis[] Positron emission tomography scan (F) showing hypermetabolic mass with SUVmax of 4.4.[]

  • Endometriosis

    A 41-year-old female patient presented with left-sided flank pain and gross hematuria temporally unrelated to her menstrual cycle.[] The remainder of the examination shows no abnormalities. His fasting serum aldosterone:renin ratio is increased. A CT scan shows a 1-cm, left adrenal mass.[] A large hypermetabolic solid mass in the left pelvic wall and several lymph nodes with elevated FDG activity were noted, which indicated malignancy.[]

  • Ganglioneuroma

    We report the case of a 5-year-old girl who presented with hematuria and a urinary tract infection and on workup was found to have a large bladder mass.[] USG and CT scan showed a well-defined heterogeneous left adrenal mass with solid and cystic components. MIBG Scan revealed a left adrenal mass. S.[] (d) FDG-PET-CT: moderately hypermetabolic lesion. Zoom The MRI confirmed the minimal uptake of contrast material after administration.[]

  • Plasmablastic Lymphoma

    Urinalysis was remarkable for microscopic hematuria.[] scan of abdomen Click here to view Figure 3: Histopathology of biopsy from adrenal mass showing sheets of monomorphic large lymphoid cells with prominent nucleoli, scant[] A FDG-PET scan showed hypermetabolic areas in the pelvis. A bone marrow biopsy showed normocellular bone marrow with no evidence of involvement by malignant lymphoma.[]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    He had renal dysfunction with hematuria and proteinuria and abdominal pain. Based on the clinical presentation and skin biopsy findings, he was diagnosed with HSP.[] Fig 2 [ 18 F]Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)–computed tomography (CT) scan.[] However, intense hypermetabolic activity in muscles of the abdominal wall was noted.[]
