Abstract

Bilateral adrenal metastases at the time of initial diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer is a rare phenomenon. In elderly patients with an extra-adrenal malignancy and other nodal metastases, it is difficult to diagnose the etiology of adrenal mass by invasive procedure. Fluorine-18 FDG PET-CT scan can be an effective alternative in this type of patient to characterize adrenal masses as metastatic using several metabolic and imaging parameters in a single setting. Here we present a rare case of synchronus bilateral adrenal metastatic masses found in an elderly gentleman with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) diagnosed during his baseline evaluation by 18F- FDG PET-CT scan.
