The secretory granules are usually abundant and vary in electron density, shape, and size, ranging from 150 to 450 nm. The secretory granules tend to accumulate under the cell membrane. 1f). Adenomas of Nelson’s Syndrome This type of adenoma is found in the patients who have undergone bilateral adrenalectomy in order to control refractory glucocorticoid overproduction. It is hypothesized that lack of glucocorticoid negative feedback following bilateral adrenalectomy is associated with the progression of a pre-existing corticotroph adenoma [7].

Silent subtype 1 adenomas are more differentiated and have similar histologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features to functional corticotroph adenomas. 1). Ultrastructurally, silent corticotroph adenomas have two different subtypes. Silent subtype 1 adenomas resemble those of functional corticotroph adenomas, while silent type 2 adenomas have less differentiated ultrastructural features. The cells of subtype 2 are smaller in size and have a polyhedral shape with centrally placed nuclei.
