    Abstract

    We present a case of adrenal metastasis from clear-cell renal cell carcinoma in which presence of a small amount of fat was shown on chemical shift gradient-echo magnetic resonance imaging. Radiologists should be aware that signal loss of the adrenal tumor on out-of-phase gradient-echo images does not always suggest the diagnosis of benign adenoma, particularly in patients with a history of renal cell carcinoma.
