Cystic adrenal lymphangiomas are very rare, benign vascular lesions. They are usually found during a work up for abdominal pain or incidentally during imaging studies for an unrelated cause. We report two cases of cystic adrenal lymphangiomas. They presented with flank discomfort, hypertension and flushing. Their laboratory findings were in normal limits. Radiologic imagings showed adrenal cystic neoplasm and the patients underwent adrenelectomy. Histopathologic examination and immunohistochemical findings were consistent with lymphangioma. Cystic lymphangiomas may imitate other adrenal neoplasms and must be kept in mind in the clinical and radiologic differential diagnosis of cystic adrenal lesions.
