Pure oestrogen-secreting feminizing adrenocortical adenoma.

Abstract

A 6-year-old boy presented with gynaecomastia. There was no clinical or biochemical evidence of excessive androgenic or glucorticoid activity, but urinary oestrogen levels were raised. An adrenocortical adenoma, demonstrated by x-ray, was surgically removed. Oestrogen levels fell immediately. 3 years later the boy shows complete regression of the gynaecomastia and no signs of recurrence.
