Primary bilateral non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the adrenal gland is very rare. Herein, we report the case of a high-grade lymphoma of both adrenal glands that was found in a 38-year-old patient. The patient was admitted because of an ultrasound which demonstrated large bilateral adrenal masses. The computed tomography scan-guided biopsy of both adrenal glands suggested the diagnosis of bilateral adrenal NHL. Primary bilateral adrenal NHL should be considered as the differential diagnosis of adrenal masses, especially if they are bilateral and well defined with rapid growth in imaging. Early diagnosis and treatment might dramatically affect the clinical outcome.
