High degree of accuracy in the evaluation of malignancy by microscopic examination of adrenal tumour has been achieved, helping in easy treatment, and follow up of the patient and also to present emerging evidence concerning the adrenocortical tumorigenesis in order to address the issue of an adenoma-carcinoma sequential progression as well as to further elucidate the incompletely understood pathophysiology of this aggressive neoplasm.
The adrenal tumour is usually high and has a medial extension, making its blind dissection an undesired option and may not allow real proper complete surgical removal.
However, intraoperative separation was very difficult; therefore, adrenal tumour resection, resection of the pancreatic body and tail, left nephrectomy and splenectomy were carried out.

Disease prevalence based on our findings is likely to be accurate as it is estimated from a large adrenal tumour data bank at one of the largest adrenal disease centres in China.[sup.14]-[sup.16] However, ethnic differences that may reflect the prevalence of ALT in other regions of the world fall outside the scope of this study.
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has been a standard procedure since the early 1990s for most patients with surgical adrenal tumour.[sup.1] The conventional laparoscopic adrenalectomy (CLA) uses 3 or 4 ports, most commonly 1 12-mm and 2 or 3 5-mm ports.
