Only in patients with indisputable adrenocortical steroid excess one might skip this analysis. As discussed above, ACC may rarely produce other hormones like ADH, renin, inhibin, or calcitonin. However, screening for these hormones on a routine basis is not suggested. In conclusion, the detailed endocrine work-up that was proposed by the ACC Working Group of ENSAT is recommended in all patients with suspected ACC. When applying these tests, only a minority of ACCs are hormonally inactive. 4 provides the results of the endocrine work-up in 377 patients in the German ACC Registry.
