Abstract
Adrenal tumours are rare and their management is challenging. Every patient presenting with adrenal mass or symptoms of hormones hypersecretion should be investigated. The two important questions to be answered are : 1. Is the tumour secreting ? Is the tumour malignant or not ? A complete endocrine work-up and a nativ CT-scan may usually answer these two questions but have to be interpreted by specialists in a multidisciplinary team setting. The decisions about managements of adrenal pathologies do follow international guidelines which are regularly updated. It is not recommended to perform diagnostic or surgical procedure before excluding pheochromocytoma or adrenocortical carcinoma which could have fatal outcome for the patient. Every adrenal mass has to be investigated and should not be made commonplace.
