Description
Solitary adrenal metastasis from endometrial adenocarcinoma is extremely rare. We report herein the case of a laparoscopically resected solitary adrenal metastasis originating from endometrial adenocarcinoma. The patient was a 55-year-old woman who had undergone total abdominal hysterectomy for stage IIIc endometrial carcinoma, followed by 7 courses of adjuvant chemotherapy comprising carboplatin and paclitaxel. However, the patient developed an isolated right adrenal metastasis 15 months postoperatively. The solitary adrenal metastasis (diameter, 5.7 cm) was removed laparoscopically. The patient has now been in good health without recurrence for 5 years and 7 months after laparoscopic surgery. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of solitary adrenal metastasis originating from endometrial adenocarcinoma that is controlled for the long term by successful laparoscopic resection.
