Adrenal pseudocysts are rare lesions and usually discovered incidentally .They are usually benign and asymptomatic. There is reported potential malignant transformation of adrenal cysts and indicates radical excision of these masses. The differential diagnosis must consider cystic adrenal carcinoma. We report the case of a 58 year-old asymptomatic woman with a well-defined 17 cm lesion of adrenal gland with calcification and necrotic components. Preoperative computed tomography of the abdomen reveals suspicion of adrenal cancer.
