Genome-Wide Studies in Adrenocortical Neoplasia
In the not too distant past, there existed a mystique amongst pathologists, radiologists, and clinicians regarding neoplasms of the adrenal cortex. Specifically, there was a belief by some that it was not possible to accurately classify adrenal tumors into benign and malignant categories in the absence of metastatic disease. It was this mystical quality that led Larry Weiss and his colleagues to systematically examine the histopathology of a series of adrenocortical tumors and thus derive the evaluation system that bears his name [1, 2].
