Abstract

Adrenocortical carcinoma can recur frequently after successful surgery but no adequate markers can detect this recurrence. Here, we present a recurrence of adrenocortical carcinoma with a high renin expression, after successful surgery, where hypertension has developed again. Tumor recurrence was observed via 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography and coregistered computed tomography. Based on our findings, follow-up blood pressure assessment may effectively predict the recurrence of adrenocortical carcinoma.
