Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case report is presented of a patient with a primary amenorrhea due to a progesterone-producing adrenocortical adenoma. Clinical and endocrinological abnormalities disappeared after removal of the tumor, and the patient experienced her menarche. To our knowledge, a predominantly progesterone-producing adrenal adenoma--in this patient associated with the clinical picture of primary amenorrhea--has not previously been described.
