Two patients with metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma were treated with cisplatin and etoposide. Both achieved a partial remission after only one cycle. One patient had a „nonfunctioning” tumor that had previously regressed on mitotane whereas the second patient presented with classical Cushing's syndrome. Although the latter patient's urinary 17‐ketosteroids normalized while receiving mitotane, the tumor itself failed to regress objectively. Cisplatin plus etoposide appears to be an active combination for the treatment of metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma.
