Abstract

A 20-year-old woman, who had a history of childbirth, was admitted to the emergency room with an acute abdomen. An abdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed retroperitoneal hemorrhage, leading to life-threatening, and multiple tumors in the liver. Additionally, chest CT also revealed multiple coin lesions in the lung. These findings strongly indicated a spontaneous rupture of adrenal tumor. We performed exploratory laparotomy. An examination during surgery showed a rupture of adrenal tumor. En bloc resection of adrenal gland, tumor, and the kidney was performed. Pathological finding revealed the adrenal tumor was choriocarcinoma.
