Introduction: We present the case of coincidence of pheochromocytoma and aderenocortical carcinoma at the same adrenal gland in patient with neurofibromatosis. That kind of tumors coincidence origin from different blastodermic layers is extremely rare.It is broadly known that pheochromocytoma is rare neoplasm, occurs in 0.1% of hypertensive individuals. Pheochromocytoma may occur sporadically or in certain familial syndromes, including multiple endocrine...

The pheochromocytoma (PH) diagnosis is often very difficult, particularly in asymptomatic or oligosymptomatic patients. Every subject with adrenal tumor should be screened for PH, although many factors may interfere with biochemical evaluation. The false positive testing for PH may result in unnecessary surgical treatment.Methods: Retrospective analysis of 45 patients after laparoscopic adrenalectomy due to suspicion of PH (based on biochemical testing) ...

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are rare neoplasm arising from dispersed endocrine system. Their incidence is estimated to be five cases per 100 000 population, although the true incidence may be higher as the consequence of often oligosymptomatic course of disease and indolent behaviour of NETs. The most typical localization of NETs is gastrointestinal tract and bronchi. However they may develop in every organ of the body containing neuroendocrine cells. The diagnosis of NET is...
