Abstract

In our experience, the incidence of PCC was high among large adrenal incidentalomas while that of ACC was lower than expected. Inflammatory lesions contribute to a significant number of cases of incidentaloma in developing countries. Adrenalectomy is a justified procedure for large incidentalomas, although the concern may not always be an underlying malignancy.
