QUEVEDO P., Germán; HAYES D., Juan Pablo; COLANZI Z., Rony  and  ARISPE, Catherine. Adrenocortical tumors: Report of two cases. Rev. bol. ped. [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.3, pp. 159-163. ISSN 1024-0675.

The adrenocortical tumors are not very frequent in the infantile population. We describe two cases attended in the ward of Pediatric Surgery of the Hospital Universitario Japonés, at Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. The patients, a three years-old girl and a four years-old boy had a precocious pubic body hair. The CT revealed in both cases adrenocortical tumors, and they were treated with the extirpation of the tumoral mass. Their diagnosis were confirmed by pathological reports: an adrenocortical carcinoma in the girl and an adrenocortical adenoma in the boy.

Keywords : Adrenocortical; adrenocortical carcinoma; adrenocortical adenoma.
