Caption

Adrenal gland adenoma. Light micrograph of a section through an adrenal gland adenoma. Adenomas are benign (non-cancerous) tumours (neoplasms). The adrenal glands are located on the kidneys, and they release various hormones such as corticosteroid. An adenoma can cause excess corticosteroid hormone production, which may lead to Cushing's syndrome. Symptoms of Cushing's syndrome include a moon-faced appearance, raised blood pressure, excess body and facial hair (especially in women) and mental disturbances. Treatment involves the removal of the adrenal gland. Magnification unknown.
