I would be intrested in looking atthis case, and if possible, trying
our immunostains on it. The description sounds most like an adrenal
neoplasm, but I can't be absolutely sure. These tumors are
cytokeratin negative but (unreadable) positivity is difficult to read
in this context.

I would be happy to take a look at this case.

With kindest regards,
