Adrenal incidentaloma (AI) has now become a common finding in clinical practice with advances in abdominal imaging. The prevalence of AI as reported in the literature is 0.2%-3%. Ganglioneuroma (GN) is often a benign non-functioning adrenal tumour, which has been rarely reported as AI in literature. Confirmed diagnosis of GN can only be done by histopathological examination. GNs are often asymptomatic even if they are large, and adrenalectomy is treatment for GN, with good prognosis after surgical removal. Here, we report a patient with an incidental adrenal mass that was managed laparoscopically and diagnosed as an adrenal GN on histopathology.
