Virilizing adrenal carcinoma is a rare disease, especially in women of reproductive age. A young woman who was seen with hirsutism, virilization, and infertility had a well-differentiated adrenal cortical carcinoma. After treatment she conceived twice and currently is disease free 8 years after treatment. This case illustrates that adrenal carcinoma and its treatment need not eliminate a woman's reproductive potential.
