21 Possible Causes for CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    An abdominal computerized tomographic (CT) scan during her work-up showed a right adrenal mass consistent with myelolipoma.[] Computerized tomography disclosed a retroperitoneal hemorrhage and a 4-cm mass on the left which was considered to be an adrenal tumor.[] The CT scan on the right shows a large right adrenal mass outlined in yellow under the normal sized liver (in red ).[]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    Symptomatic presentation is most frequently with spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage ; the risk of bleeding is proportional to the size of the lesion ( 4 cm diameter).[] 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[] Surgical intervention recommended for tumors 4 cm (retroperitoneal hemorrhage is common complication). advertisement advertisement[]

  • 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.[] A computerized tomography scan of the abdomen with intravenous contrast demonstrated massive right-sided retroperitoneal hemorrhage.[] Surgery generally is not required in cases of nontraumatic adrenal hemorrhage, except in patients with primary adrenal tumors or in rare cases, of extensive retroperitoneal[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    CT scan of the abdomen revealed a 35 mm left adrenal mass.[] We report an unusual case of a spontaneously ruptured adrenocortical carcinoma that initially presented as a critical massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage.[] Contrast enhanced computerized tomography (CT) scan of abdomen showed bilateral adrenal masses with peripheral enhancement and central hypodensities [Figure 1].[]

  • 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.[] CT scan showed previously undiagnosed large right adrenal mass (5.9cm). The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma was confirmed after adrenalectomy.[] Tests include: An adrenal biopsy that shows pheochromocytoma A MIBG scintiscan that shows tumor An MRI of abdomen that shows adrenal mass An abdominal CT scan that shows mass[]

  • Adrenal Gland Metastasis

    […] gland mass; CT scan and CT - PET did not show other pathological findings.[] […] massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage was a complication is reported in the urologic literature.[] (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.[]

  • Bilateral Massive Adrenal Hemorrhage

    (a) Enhanced CT scan shows a right adrenal mass. Note the area of low attenuation (arrow).[] Retroperitoneal hemorrhage can also occur during chemotherapy.[] Contrast enhanced computerized tomography (CT) scan of abdomen showed bilateral adrenal masses with peripheral enhancement and central hypodensities [Figure 1].[]

  • Renal Carcinoma

    Signs of tumor extension are renal vein occlusion of the vena cava, potentially up to the right atrium, or spontaneous rupture of the kidney with retroperitoneal hemorrhage[] Figure: CT scan shows large left renal mass with calcification (m) invading the left renal vein (arrow). 19 20.[] Figure : Computed tomography demonstratesa right renal carcinoma (m) with a largecontralateral adrenal metastasis (a).[]

  • Renal Adenoma

    Figure 1 : CT scan showing left heterogenous enhancing adrenal mass. Based on these findings, patient underwent left open Adrenalectomy ( Figure 2 ).[] hemorrhage, which can result in large blood loss leading to severe shock.[] A nonfunctional adrenal carcinoma causes a diffuse and infiltrating retroperitoneal process. Hemorrhage can occur, causing adrenal hematomas.[]

  • Ganglioneuroma

    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.[] Fine needle aspiration and biopsy of pheochromocytoma has been reported to precipitate a hypertensive crisis, retroperitoneal hemorrhage and death. [4] An adrenal incidentaloma[] A computed tomography (CT) scan confirmed the presence of a homogeneous, solid adrenal tumor 6 cm in diameter showing peripheral enhancement.[]
