  • We describe a case of cancer of the left adrenal gland with a thrombus of the vena cava that reached the right atrium which was treated with abdominal and cardiac surgery. The positive outcome and the current literature lead the Authors to sustain surgical intervention with the aim either of radical eradication or reduction of the neoplastic mass leading to a reduction of the ormonal effects and a better effectiveness of adjuvant therapy.

  • KEY WORDS: adrenal gland, cancer, caval thrombus.
