Abstract
PURPOSE: This study aimed to analyze the effect of each therapeutic modality to clarify the treatment strategy for adrenal metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: Adrenal metastasis from HCC was observed in 45 patients. Fifteen patients who were determined to have multi-organ metastasis including the adrenal glands were excluded, and the remaining 30 patients were reviewed. RESULTS: The location of adrenal metastasis was right side, left side, and both in 17, 9, and 4 patients, respectively. Treatment for adrenal metastasis consisted of adrenalectomy in 5 patients, non-surgical treatment such as TACE, or chemotherapy and radiotherapy in 19 patients, while 6 patients received no treatment. The median survival duration was 11.05 months in the 30 patients with adrenal metastasis. In the 25 patients with well-controlled intrahepatic lesions, the median survival time of those patients who received adrenalectomy, non-surgical treatment, and no treatment was 21.41, 11.05, and 5.64 months, respectively. The difference in cumulative survival according to mode of treatment of adrenal metastasis in the well-controlled intrahepatic lesion group was statistically significant. CONCLUSION: We envisage increased benefit after adrenalectomy in terms of survival in patients with well controlled intrahepatic lesions at the time of adrenal metastasis and good general medical condition.
