Title

Isolated Adrenal Cryptococcosis, Diagnosed by Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy: A Case Report

Publication Date

2014

Journal Title

Diagn Cytopathol

Abstract

This report documents a case of isolated adrenal gland cryptococcosis without the often reported component of concomitant meningitis or Addison's disease in an immune competent patient. Furthermore, both the patient's lung cancer and adrenal infection with cryptococcus were incidentally discovered during work-up for syncope in the setting of hyponatremia. This case also underscores the diagnostic value of fine-needle aspiration biopsy in this unusual presentation. Diagn. Cytopathol. 2014;42:899-901. (c) 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
