Carcinomas of the Adrenal Cortex


The dataset has been developed for the pathology reporting of malignant adrenal cortical resection specimens. Borderline (low-malignant potential lesions) are included, along with paediatric adrenal cortical carcinomas. Neuroblastoma, sarcoma and lymphoma are not covered in the dataset. Core needle biopsies, benign lesions and tumours and metastasis are not included. Tumours of the adrenal medulla (e.g., phaeochromocytoma) are dealt with in a separate dataset.
