Abstract

This is a report on a 44-year-old woman who was referred to our hospital because of hypertension and a left adrenal mass detected by ultrasonic examination. Computer tomography scan revealed a 17 × 12 mm mass in the left adrenal region. The patient underwent surgery for suspicion of left adrenal pheochromocytoma. Histological examination revealed that the resected mass was splenic tissue. This indicated that surgeons should consider the possibility of accessory spleen when adrenal mass is suspected on imaging examination.
