Sundberg J
Method / Stain:
IHC for tyrosine hydroxylase
Image Caption:
Adrenocortical adenoma. The kidney is in the upper left corner of this image. The adrenal gland has been subjected to immunohistochemistry for detection of expression of tyrosine hydroxylase. The center of the gland (adrenal medulla) is positive for this enzyme (dark brown). The cortex is blue due to the counterstain (hematoxylin). To the right of the medulla is an round mass that compresses the cortex. The cells resemble the cortex and do not express tyrosine hydroxylase and therefore are most likely of adrenal cortex origin.

Method / Stain:
chromium fixation method for adrenal medulla
Image Caption:
Adrenocortical adenoma. Chromium fixation delineates the adrenal medulla (brown staining). The blue nodule in the cortex compresses the adjacent normal cells. The tumor cells form small islands of polyhedral cells in a typical "endocrine" pattern.

Sundberg J
Method / Stain:
chromium fixation method for adrenal medulla
Image Caption:
Adrenocortical adenoma. The classical histochemical approach to evaluating the adrenal medulla is to fix it in chromium based fixatives as shown here. The medulla stains brown while the remainder of the gland, the cortex, is blue due to the counterstain. In the upper right quadrant of the cortex is a dark blue nodule that is an adrenal cortical adenoma since it does not stain brown, is located within the adrenal cortex, and has cellular features consistent with the cortical cells.

Method / Stain:
H&E
Image Caption:
Type A spindle cell adrenocortical carcinoma. The neoplasm is located on the left and has caused edema and necrosis of many adrenal cortical cells on the right. This is evidenced by the many clear spaces between the cells (edema fluid lost in the tissue processing).

Method / Stain:
H&E
Image Caption:
Type A spindle cell adrenocortical carcinoma. The details of the cell type can be seen here. Some cells are spindle shaped with elongated oval nuclei. Cytoplasmic boundries are difficult to identify. Mitotic figures (circles) are frequent. Some pink cortical cells remain but most are lost due to expansion and compression of the primary neoplasm.
