Abstract

Recent increased use of ultrasonography and computed tomography have led to the problem of adrenal incidentaloma, an asymptomatic adrenal mass discovered during investigation of some other problem. Treatment of these tumors, described as incidentalomas is controversial and the most important question in regard to such tumors is whether or not there is a need for surgical exploration as the final diagnostic measure because benign lesion of the adrenal gland is much more common than malignant one. And there exist a need to accumulate better information related to this entity in order to establish more reliable guideline for patient management when incidentaloma is encountered. Herein, we report a case of incidentally found adrenal ganglioneuroma in 14-year old boy who underwent surgical exploration.
