Here, we report a case of an adrenal rest tumor in the liver that mimicked HCC radiologically.
Therefore, we thought it was not HCC, suggesting the possibility of an adrenal rest tissue of the liver or a metastatic clear cell carcinoma of the kidney, although no mass was detected radiologically in the kidney, and a malignant tumor was not detected in the adrenal cortex.
Thus, the final histopathologic diagnosis in this case was an adrenal rest tumor of the liver.
The diagnosis of testicular adrenal rest tumor had been confirmed by clinical, morphological, immunohistochemical, laboratory, and endocrinological evaluations, and the patient was referred to endocrinology clinic for future treatment.
Key words: Adrenal hyperplasia; 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency; testicular adrenal rest tumor.
