Abstract

Lipoma of the adrenal gland is an extremely uncommon tumor detected incidentally at postmortem or during life when the patient undergoes investigations for other reasons. All tumors reported in the literature were very small in size. We report a case of lipoma of the adrenal gland in a 45-year-old male patient who was hypertensive and presented with pain in the abdomen. The symptomatic presentation, large size, laparoscopic removal and rarity of this tumor merit documentation in the literature.
