Abstract

Key Clinical Message: A rare cause for rapid adrenal enlargement is adrenal oncocytoma of uncertain malignant potential. A full biochemical evaluation is warranted to screen secreting adrenal adenomas as well as to evaluate adrenal cortical carcinoma. Careful pathologic evaluation is required as the diagnosis of AOC cannot be made by imaging. A rare cause for rapid adrenal enlargement is adrenal oncocytoma of uncertain malignant potential.
