VENIZELOS, J. et al. High grade primary adrenal intravascular large B-cell lymphoma manifesting as Addison disease. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2007, vol.99, n.8, pp.471-474. ISSN 1130-0108.
We report a rare case of a 68 aged male who presented with adrenal failure and was diagnosed of high grade large B-cell lymphoma primarily arising in the adrenal glands. The patient was administrated with additional chemotherapy but he passed away 7 months later due to infection in the lungs. Intravascular lymphoma should be suspected in patients with bilateral adrenal masses who present with rapidly progressive adrenal insufficiency.
