abstract

  • Lipomatous metaplasia is histologically demonstrated in a case of macronodular hyperplasia with marked adrenal enlargement. This distinctive change may be secondary to metaplastic transformation of either stromal cells or adrenocortical cells. The presence of lipomatous metaplasia would appear to indicate adrenocortical process, since, to our knowledge, it has never before been described in the adrenal nodule.
