Abstract

Ganglioneuroma is generally considered to be a benign tumor arising from neural crest tissue. An adrenal ganglioneuroma is located within the substance of the adrenal medulla or along the sympathetic chain, thus may secrete catecholamines, and present with endocrine symptoms. However, nonfunctional growths remain silent until they reach a large size, and are usually discovered incidentally. Complete surgical excision of adrenal ganglioneuroma is the treatment of choice, and especially a laparoscopic adrenalectomy can be performed safely, and is an ideal substitute to an open procedure, with the added benefits associated with minimally invasive surgery. Herein, we report a case of an incidentally discovered adrenal ganglioneuroma.
