Abstract
Adrenohepatic fusion is defined as
adhesion of the liver and right adrenal
cortex and close intermingling
of the respective parenchymal
cells [1], with partial or complete absence
of the fibrous capsule dividing the two organs
[2]. Although it is not rare at autopsy [1], the
clinical significance of adrenohepatic fusion
has been rarely described. We report a case of
adrenal cortical adenoma that developed in
adrenohepatic fusion tissue and mimicked
malignant hepatic tumor at CT and angiography-
assisted CT.
