MACIA BOBES, Carmen et al. Unilateral adrenal hemorrhage and hypertensive crisis in a patient with antiplatelet treatment. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.9, pp.1119-1122. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report a case of non-traumatic adrenal hemorrhage in a man with antiplatelet treatment. Methods: The patient was admitted to the Critical Care Unit because of a non-controlled hypertensive crisis. Pheochromocytoma was analytically excluded. The patient underwent a delayed adrenalectomy. Results: Pathologic study of the specimen showed a wide hemorrhagic necrosis. Conclusions: Association of high blood pressure and adrenal hemorrhage is not pathognomonic of pheochromocytoma.

Keywords : Adrenal glands; Hemorrhage; Hypertension; Adrenalectomy; Pheochromocytoma.
