Advances in the diagnosis and management of adrenocortical carcinoma

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare but aggressive cancer, with complete surgical resection offering the best opportunity for cure. Despite complete surgical resection, most patients with ACC will experience recurrence, and the efficacy of systemic therapy is limited. This chapter will discuss the presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and therapeutic options for patients with adrenocortical carcinoma.
