Abstract

Adrenal lipoadenoma is an extremely rare tumor. Only four cases have been reported so far. The authors reported a case of adrenal lipoadenoma in a 46-year-old man with the history of abdominal pain. The present case, manifesting as a nonfunctional adrenal tumor, is characteristically comprised of a mixture of mature adipocytes and adrenocortical cells. We also reviewed this tumor in different organs which have been published in the literature.
