  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    Hyperaldosteronism is a cause of secondary hypertension and its diagnosis is usually benign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of a testosterone-secreting oncocytic adrenocortical carcinoma in a 19-year-old female who presented with acne, hirsutism and irregular menses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this paper, we report a 12-year-old Chinese girl who was diagnosed with female pseudohermaphroditism characterized by clitoridauxe, hirsutism, acne, hypertension, and karyotype[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
