Adrenal Gland - Accessory Adrenocortical Nodule - Gallery

Image of accessory adrenocortical nodule in the adrenal gland from a male F344/N rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland - Accessory adrenocortical nodule in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study. There is a nodule of adrenal cortical cells on the extracapsular surface (arrow).

Adrenal gland - Accessory adrenocortical nodule in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). The cells of this accessory adrenocortical nodule (asterisk) at the extracapsular surface are well-differentiated zona fasciculata cells and are surrounded by a delicate fibrous capsule (arrow).

Periadrenal fat - Accessory adrenocortical nodule in a male B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study. An accessory cortical nodule (arrow) is present in the periadrenal (retroperitoneal) fat.

Periadrenal fat - Accessory adrenocortical nodule in a male B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 5). Accessory cortical nodule (arrow) is composed of well-differentiated adrenal cortical cells surrounded by a thin fibrous capsule in the periadrenal (retroperitoneal) fat.
