Abstract

We present the case of a female patient with virilising adrenocortical carcinoma treated surgically who conceived during adjuvant treatment with mitotane. We discuss the frequently erroneous routine treatment with oral hormonal contraception without thorough differential diagnosis in female patients with oligo-/amenorrhea and subsequent delay in the proper diagnosis of adrenocortical carcinoma.
