Severe hyperkalemia and bilateral adrenal metastasis

Severe hyperkalemia and bilateral adrenal metastasis

Journal of Oncology 2009: 831979

Adrenal metastases are a common finding in metastatic lung and breast cancer. Often there are no clinical symptoms suggesting them. In this paper, we present a case of a 66-year-old man with metastatic lung cancer suffering from severe hyperkaliemia due to hypoaldosteronism as a result of bilateral adrenal metastasis.
