A 59-year-old woman underwent an adrenal screening for hirsutism (face, chest). She had no clinical signs of hypercorticism. Laboratory investigations demonstrated increased plasma testosterone levels (twice the upper normal limit) and a markedly increased SDHEA level (ten times upper normal limit). Urinary free cortisol level was normal. Imaging studies showed a left adrenal mass of about 5 cm consistent with a cortical tumor without aggressive imaging characteristics. Contralateral adrenal gland and ovaries were normal. FDG-PET scan showed a moderate uptake at the left adrenal gland (tumor/liver SUV ratio = 2.1).
