Adrenocortical Carcinoma in Children


About this study

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is an aggressive, rare childhood cancer. Limited evidence exists on a definite histopathological criterion to differentiate ACC from adrenocortical adenomas. Early diagnosis and management is the key. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment. Even after complete resection, a high risk of recurrence of ACC remains. Despite multi-modality treatment strategies, ACC is associated with poor survival. Due to the rarity of pediatric ACC, limited evidence exists on morbidity and mortality of these patients as well as prognostic factors for survival. The aim of this study is to document morbidity and mortality of children with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) and identify prognostic factors for survival.
