Abstract
Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare disease in childhood. Most of these carcinomas are functional, produc- ing endocrine abnormalities such as Cushing syndrome, virilization, precocious puberty, hyperaldosteronism or feminization. We experienced a case of adrenocortical carcinoma in a 12 month old male infant who exhibited features of Cushing syndrome, Virilization, precocious puberty and hyperaldosteronism, which were due to functional adrenocortical carcinoma. Microscopic examination revealed cellular pleomorphism and bizzare multinu- cleated nuclei. He was successfully treated by total left adrenalectomy and has been followed up without problem over 13 months. A review of literatures was also made.
Key Words: Adrenocortical carcinoma, Cushing syndrome, Vilirization, Precocious puberty
