GENERALIZED XANTHOMATOSIS WITH CALCIFIED ADRENALS

GENERALIZED XANTHOMATOSIS WITH CALCIFIED ADRENALS Abstract THIS REPORT deals with a case of generalized xanthomatosis which exhibited an unusual feature—massive calcification of the adrenals. Massive bilateral calcification of the adrenal glands in early infancy is a very rare finding, and very few cases have been reported in which this lesion has been discovered on the plain x-ray picture in vivo.

The infant had been healthy and had gained weight satisfactorily on breast feeding until a week before admission, when she started to vomit, although not forcefully. On admission the infant appeared very ill and had a pale yellowish complexion, but no abnormal pigmentation of the skin was noted. The breathing was superficial.
