Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In the literature, there is no reported pediatric leiomyosarcoma case that has metastasized from the small intestine to the adrenal gland. A 10-year-old boy who had anemia and weight loss over 2 years presented with abdominal pain that began 1 week previously. Radiologic examination revealed bilateral adrenal tumors. At the time of surgery, the terminal ileum was resected and a tru-cut biopsy was done from the right adrenal mass. The pathology report was leiomyosarcoma for both of the resection and tru-cut specimens. We present an intestinal leiomyosarcoma that metastasized from the small intestine to both adrenal glands with clinical, morphologic, and immunohistochemical studies with a literature review.
