Adrenal metastasis is common (35%) among the patients with lung cancer, while less than 3% of the patients develop bilateral adrenal metastasis. Adrenal metastases are generally small and clinically asymptomatic. Adrenal insufficiency is rare despite the presence of adrenal metastasis. Lam et al. reported this ratio as 0.7%. We aimed to present a case with lung cancer and bilateral adrenal metastasis who developed adrenal insufficiency.A 63-year old male...

Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is one of the most aggressive and lethal human malignancies. The median survival time following diagnosis is typically six months or less. Rapidly growing tumors may cause respiratory failure by compressing trachea. A 71-year-old woman presented with 1-month history of dyspnea, cyanosis and rapidly enlarging neck mass for the past 2 weeks. She had been suffering from multinodular goiter disease. Physical examination revealed a large, fixed an...

Acromegaly affects 4–6 people in a million and hypophyseal GH releasing adenoma is the most common cause of the disease. It shows its effects on GH and IGF1. Since they grow rapidly, they are usually diagnosed at the stage of macroadenomas. Heart failure, arthritis, OSAS and DM may develop during course of the disease. Although the most common accompanying malignancy is colon cancer, the incidence of malign melanoma, breast, thyroid, gastric and lung cancers is also incre...
