Abstract

We report a case of bilateral lymphoma of the adrenal glands. A 61-year-old man was admitted to our hospital in clinical shock with anuria. Endocrine examination indicated a diagnosis of Addison's disease. Large tumors were found bilaterally in the suprarenal area, and a needle biopsy was performed, and the diagnosis was malignant lymphoma. Treatment with chemotherapy achieved a moderate response. He was discharged, but died 1 month later. On autopsy, microscopic examination showed extensive intravascular infiltration of lymphoma cells. We considered this to be a case of bilateral adrenal lymphoma with neoplastic angioendotheliosis.<br>(Internal Medicine 36: 47-52, 1997)
