Bilateral Adrenal-Renal Fusion: A Radiological Diagnosis
Received Date: May 16, 2018 / Accepted Date: Jun 04, 2018 / Published Date: Jun 11, 2018
In normal anatomy, the kidneys and adrenal glands are contained within the renal fascia and separated by a connective tissue capsule derived from mesenchymal tissue. Incomplete encapsulation can occur during embryonic development, resulting in adrenal-renal fusion. The true incidence of this developmental anomaly is unknown, as it has primarily been described in the literature following incidental detection on surgical or histological examination.
We report the first documented case of bilateral adrenal-renal fusion, diagnosed radiologically.
