PMID: 33102022 PMCID: PMC7573820 URL: https://www.scopus.com/inward/record.uri?eid=2-s2.0-85087025893&doi=10.1016%2fj.eucr.2020.101320&partnerID=40&md5=b6fd4a761fb56a98a2bbd5651e482176
AbstractSmall cell carcinoma (SCC) is an aggressive histologic subtype of neuroendocrine tumor and is most commonly of bronchogenic origin. However, it can present in an extrapulmonary fashion. Primary extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma (EPSCC) is a rare disease entity, especially within the genitourinary system and furthermore of the adrenal gland. There are scarce case reports that describe management of primary adrenal SCC. We present a case of localized primary adrenal SCC diagnosed on adrenal mass biopsy and successfully treated via neoadjuvant chemotherapy and extirpative surgery.
