An extremely rare case of adrenocortical cancer with cannon ball pulmonary metastasis
Multiple pulmonary nodules on chest X-ray, known commonly as cannon ball secondaries, are the classical presentation of hematogenous dissemination of a malignant tumor to the lungs. This almost always indicates an advanced stage of the disease with a very grim outlook in terms of cure or survival. In this case report, we present a patient with very extensive cannon ball lung metastases due to adrenocortical carcinoma with a more favorable prognosis. This is the first case described in the literature of cannonball lung metastases from adrenocortical tumor in a man.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
