    Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is rare in children. Its presentation is usually related to hormonal activity of the tumour. We report a case of childhood ACC that presented as an acute abdomen due to tumour rupture. This is the first reported case of a ruptured ACC as a cause of paediatric acute...

    Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare tumor in children. This tumor is more likely to be hormonally active in children than in adults and tends to cause a variety of symptoms, which may mimic other benign endocrinopathies. These tumors are usually diagnosed at advanced stages and portend a dismal...

    The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis plays an important role in adaptation to stress, but is vulnerable to chronic stress exposure. Parental problem drinking (PPD) represents such a chronic stressor, but there has been little research on children's HPA axis activity in the context of...

    Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy with poor prognosis, and it can be classified as either a functional or nonfunctional tumor. Affected patients usually present with abdominal pain or with symptoms related to the mass effect or hormonal activity of the tumor. Several cases of...
