Abstract

We report spinal metastasis of adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) to the T12 vertebrae with epidural extension. ACC is a rare malignancy with poor prognosis and high rates of metastasis. However, spinal lesions of ACC are rare, and few have been reported in the literature. We discuss our management of this lesion and review the current understanding and treatment of ACC and spinal metastasis.
