Introduction: The prevalence of adrenal incidentalomas (AI) and renal cysts increase with age. Depending on the study population age and sex, on average, both are prevalent with about 8 to 10% in subjects older than 50 years of age.Aim: We aimed to investigate the co-occurrence of AI and simple renal cysts.Methods: Our study included 970 subjects, 494 with AI – all evaluated in single centre, and 476 control group (CG) patien...

Introduction: The incidence of adrenal incidentaloma (AI) increases with age. According to epidemiological studies they are more frequent in women than in men.Aim: The aim was to determine the possible clinical sexual dimorphism in patients with nonfunctional adrenal incidentaloma (NAI).Patients and methods: This was an observational, cross-sectional study of 381 patients with AI that were functionally assessed in our Clinic. After...

Introduction: Many diseases of the adrenal cortex show a higher prevalence in women than men with incidence increasing with age in both genders.Aim: The aim was to determine the possible sexual dimorphism in patients with adrenal incidentaloma (AI) and (possible) autonomous cortisol secretion ((P)ACS).Methods: This was an observational, cross-sectional study of 381 patients with AI that were functionally assessed in our Clinic. Aft...

At present there are no unified diagnostic criteria for subclinical hypercortisolism (SH) in patients with adrenal incidentalomas (AI). Recently it has been proposed that an age and gender specific DHEAS ratio (calculated by dividing DHEAS by the lower limit of the respective reference range) has a significant diagnostic value in detection of SH.The aim was to evaluate the value of DHEAS as a diagnostic tool for SH. Retrospectively we evaluated 140 AI pa...
