Abstract

Schwannoma of the adrenal gland is extremely rare. Here, we report a 49-year-old patient with an adrenal tumor noted incidentally by abdominal ultrasonography while undergoing regular health examination. Retroperitoneal laparoscopic adrenalectomy was performed and the schwannoma was diagnosed by histologic findings and immunohistochemistry. Five months after surgery, the patient remained well and without evidence of recurrence or metastasis.
