16 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Hypercalcemia, Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Pheochromocytoma associated with hypercalcemia and ectopic secretion of calcitonin. Ann Intern Med . Aug 1979;91(2):208-10. [Medline] .[] 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[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Google Scholar 7 : A parathyroid hormone-related protein implicated in malignant hypercalcemia: cloning and expression. Science 1987 ; 237 : 893.[] In addition, the patient had 2 hypermetabolic uterine leiomyomas.[] Computer tomography (CT) scan showed a solid right renal lesion, multiple liver metastases, florid chest, lymphadenopathy in left supraclavicular region and a right adrenal[]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Some cases of severe hypercalcemia associated with HCC were reported, in which the cause of hypercalcemia was ectopic PTH-related peptide secretion.[] 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.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Hypercalcemia: A high level of calcium in the blood, called hypercalcemia, may become a medical emergency.[] Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[] Second period The early post-resuscitation phase is a period of transition from the shock phase to the hypermetabolic phase, and fluid strategies should change radically with[]

  • Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 2A

    Preoperative tests revealed hypercalcemia associated with elevation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) (calcium   11.2 mg/dL, calcium ion   1.48 mmol/L, phosphorus   4.0 mg/dL,[] Figure 2 Enhanced CT scanning of the adrenal gland shows a round-like cystic solid mass located at the right adrenal gland (Black arrow).[] 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 Gland Metastasis

    […] insufficiency include weakness, fatigue, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, constipation, hyperpigmentation, hypotension, vitiligo, electrolyte disturbances (hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, hypercalcemia[] (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[]

  • Carcinoma of the Lung

    Blood biochemistry revealed an elevated alkaline phosphatase with hypercalcemia. CXR showed right lower lobe pleural thickening.[] Chest CT scan showed a lobulated mass of 2.7 cm 2.7 cm in size at the upper left lung.[] ., Ichinose, Y. (2008) Pulmonary typical carcinoid tumor and liver metastasis with hypermetabolism on 18-fluorodeoxyglucose PET: a case report.[]

  • Plasmablastic Lymphoma

    hypercalcemia may be seen in PBL also, as seen in the second patient.[] 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.[]

  • Ectopic ACTH Syndrome

    This is the first report of an endocrine-active HB causing both Cushing's syndrome and PTHrP-related 'humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy'.[] 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[] 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[]

  • Pulmonary Clear Cell Tumor

    […] carcinomas arising from extrapulmonary sites may be associated with paraneoplastic syndromes, notably syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) and hypercalcemia[] Positron emission tomography scan (F) showing hypermetabolic mass with SUVmax of 4.4.[] 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[]
