The authors report a case of delayed diagnosis of traumatic haematoma of the right adrenal gland. Chronic unilateral haematomas are rare and their preoperative diagnosis is often difficult because of the long interval since trauma, which may be completely forgotten. This raises the problem of an adrenal mass whose origin is often only detected on histology of the operative specimen.
