Six pathologists from Japan and the United Kingdom evaluated four different cases of adrenocortical disorders independently. These adrenocortical disorders included an adrenal tumor in a 45-yr-old female without any endocrine abnormalities, bilateral adrenocortical lesions in a 55-yr-old female with Cushing syndrome, an adrenocortical mass in a 44-yr-old man with hypertension, and an adrenocortical lesion in a 62-yr-old female with chronic hypertension for 30 yr. In this article, we provide a clinical summary, macroscopic and histologic findings, and histologic diagnosis of these four adrenocortical cases.
