Primary Malignant Melanoma of Adrenal Gland
A 49 years old male presented with abdominal pain for two months. Abdominal examination revealed slight tenderness in the right lumbar region. On radiological examination an abnormal lesion, measuring 5.5cm x 4.5cm, involving the right adrenal gland was found. It was biopsied and histological and immunohistochemical features were consistent with malignant melanoma. After meticulous physical examination, the patient did not have ocular or muco-cutaneous melanoma and he did not have any past significant medical or surgical history. We labelled this case as primary malignant melanoma of adrenal gland. Unfortunately, the patient died two months after the detection of tumor and before the start of treatment.
