12 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Increased Basal Metabolic Rate, Pulmonary Embolism

  • 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.[] […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[] We report the case of a clinically and biochemically silent giant pheochromocytoma that presented as bilateral pulmonary embolisms.[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    In addition, the patient had 2 hypermetabolic uterine leiomyomas.[] He developed hypoxic respiratory failure, thought secondary to a massive pulmonary embolism and was treated with tissue plasminogen activator but died in the hospital despite[] 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

    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.[] There was no evidence of pulmonary embolism, aortic dissection, or ischemic heart disease. Laboratory findings for catecholamine surge were all within normal limits.[]

  • Adrenal Hemorrhage

    Abdominal CT scan ( Figures 2 and 3 ) showed a mass with spontaneous hyper-dense aspects in the hepato–renal space corresponding to the adrenal lodge.[] Imaging findings that may indicate underlying tumor include intralesional calcification, enhancement, and hypermetabolic activity on PET images.[] Complications, when they do occur, are most often associated with deep venous thrombosis and possible pulmonary embolism, infection, prosthetic failure or loosening, or neurovascular[]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    Multiple hypermetabolic pulmonary metastases were also noted.[] Though generally considered benign, angiomyolipomas can invade through the renal vein into the inferior vena cava, putting patients at risk of catastrophic pulmonary fat embolization[] 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[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    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[] Clots that break loose and travel to the lungs can cause respiratory distress and pulmonary embolism, while clots that travel to the brain can cause a stroke.[]

  • Pulmonary Clear Cell Tumor

    Positron emission tomography scan (F) showing hypermetabolic mass with SUVmax of 4.4.[] Sternotomy is the most commonly used approach, but a thora- co-abdominal incision has also been successfully employed.12-14 Serial echo-guided percutaneous coil embolization[] 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[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    CT scan of the abdomen revealed a 35 mm left adrenal mass.[] No metastasis or size increase of the remaining adrenal glands were found suggesting that their hypermetabolic state could be attributed to mitotane treatment.[] Death was due to massive pulmonary tumor embolism.[]

  • Teratoma

    Whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) scan identified a small hypermetabolic pelvic mass.[] […] perfusion study is an essential step for diagnosing pulmonary embolism, a frequent complication in cancer after lower limb or pelvis thrombophlebitis.[] Abdominal non-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan showed a huge tumor with mixed density in right adrenal region, which had cystic components, fat, calcifications, and[]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing 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[] […] showing no lateralization Click here to view Figure 6: F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography-Showing well defined heterogeneously enhancing hypermetabolic[] embolism Pulmonary examination Pulmonary function testing Pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale Purines and pyrimidines Pyelonephritis Pyogenic liver abscess Quality and[]
