Adrenal benign and malignant tumors are characterized by complex issues for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and, for this reason, are usually managed in referral centers where expertise and large volume of patients guarantee good clinical results.
An improvement in the diagnostic process requires that radiologists, endocrinologists, and pathologists have specific knowledge of the features of the different clinical conditions associated with an adrenal tumor in order to guide them toward making the correct therapeutic decision based on multidisciplinary considerations. The criteria to indicate medical or surgical management of adrenal tumors are based on well-defined guidelines and protocols.
When, as usual, a surgical approach is indicated, the role of a specific preoperative clinical assessment is of paramount importance to ensure the safety of the procedure and proper recovery after surgery. Therefore, the role of dedicated expert anesthesiologists and the availability of an intensive care unit are absolutely recommended at least for the management of pheochromocytoma.
In the last few decades, a significant evolution in surgery has been witnessed in terms of the management of adrenal tumors, starting from classical open access, passing through the laparoscopic and retroperitoneoscopic approaches, and ending with the robotic procedures. In this wide range of available approaches and techniques, each of the above mentioned may represent the best option depending on the specific clinical scenario.
Considering the recognized international interest in adrenal benign and malignant tumors, this Special Issue aims to present the most recent work and analyses in terms of their diagnosis and therapy, thus offering readers an important update on this topic.
