Case contributed by Assoc Prof Frank Gaillard

Patient Data

Age: 1 year old
Gender: Male
X-ray

Calcification is demonstrated on either side of the T12 vertebral body consistent with calcification within the adrenal glands. 

Case Discussion

Incidental adrenal calcification in a one year old child, has a relatively broad differential but most likely relates to previous hemorrhage or if of the correct demographic, prior TB.  Other differential to bear in mind in this age group is neuroblastoma.
