Full text PDF
Ectopic adrenal tissue is an occasional finding during surgery procedures. These remnants are usually found near the primary gland or along the course of gonadal vessels consistently with embryologic development. The appearance is of a small but distinct, soft, round, yellow nodule and only cortical adrenal tissue is normally observed.
We report a case of an emergency laparoscopic salpingostomy for isolated tubal torsion with excision of EAT, incidentally found in left ovarian pedicle, followed by postoperative resumption of regular menses and regression of hirsutism. Although intraoperative research of ectopic adrenal tissue is not necessary its removal is indicated in case of incidental finding. If hyperandrogenic features are present, ectopic adrenal tissue should be actively researched when surgery is performed.
