Lysodren is a medication that contains the active ingredient mitotane.

Lysodren is primarily used to treat the symptoms of advanced adrenal cortical carcinoma, which is a type of cancer that affects the outer layer of the adrenal gland.

Lysodren is typically prescribed when the cancer is inoperable or when surgery is not an option.

Mitotane works by suppressing the adrenal glands, which reduces the production of hormones. This can help alleviate the symptoms associated with adrenal cortical carcinoma, such as excessive production of cortisol.
