In his paper on tumors of the suprarenal cortex read before the Staff of the Mayo Clinic in 1933, Kepler1 cites the following quotation from Rowntree and Ball:
"We may say that there are various types of tumors of the suprarenal gland, resulting in a large variety of clinical symptoms and syndromes, many of which are difficult to explain adequately in the present state of knowledge. Correlated clinical, pathological and chemical studies are urgently needed." The following four case reports, which more or less imperfectly meet these specifications, seem worth adding to the literature.
Case 1. F. R., female, 13
