The adrenal gland is a common site for metastasis from lung cancer. Adrenal metastases are usually solitary, asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally during staging of patients with lung cancer. Bilateral adrenal metastases at the time of diagnosis are seen in 3% of lung cancer patients. Large symptomatic bilateral adrenal metastases at presentation are extremely rare and those occurring in the setting of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) have not been reported previously. Herein we describe a ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
Persistent hypoglycemia. Pediatr Emerg Care, 29(7): 838-41.
Hypoglycemia is a common finding in emergency departments. In this article, we review the causes of hypoglycemia in children, the evaluation and management of a child with persistent hypoglycemia, and causes of adrenal insufficiency in children. We report a case of adrenoleukodystrophy, a type of primary adrenal insufficiency, in a 5-year-old boy who presented with altered mental status, seizures, and hypoglycemia. [Abstract] [Full-text]

Severe hemodynamic instability in a patient with suspected hepatoadrenal syndrome during liver transplantation -A case report-. Korean J Anesthesiol, 64(6): 536-40.
Adrenal insufficiency, which is related to hemodynamic instability and increased mortality, has been reported in patients with advanced liver disease regardless of the presence of septic conditions. In this regard, the hepatoadrenal syndrome has been recently proposed as adrenal insufficiency in critically ill patients with liver disease. We describe here a 67-year-old female patient with hepatic failure and adrenal insufficiency. The patient showed stable vital signs and no evidence of sepsis ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
