Abstract

Adrenal incidentalomas are discovered incidentally during a radiological examination of the abdomen whatever the reason justifying this exploration.

 

We report the case of a 37 years old woman with no particular family history and who consulted for a right adrenal incidentaloma discovered during an abdominal ultrasound performed for vomiting. Clinical examination revealed a blood pressure-110/70 mmHg, a Menard triad (headaches, palpitations, sweating), a multiheteronodular goiter without signs of thyroid dysfunction, café-au-lait spots and cutaneous neurofibromas and diffuses lentiginous.

 

Laboratory tests confirmed the secretory nature of the mass. A radiological assessment with an abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT) scan showed a right adrenal tissue mass measuring 47×48×38 mm. The MIBG scintigraphy confirmed the neuroendocrine nature of the mass and the absence of other sites.
