- •Adrenal hemangiomas are very rare, non-functioning, benign tumors that are usually incidentally detected and large in size at diagnosis.
- •They have varied imaging appearances however imaging can help in the diagnosis and surgical planning especially in large tumors that infiltrate into adjacent structures particularly vascular structures. Pre-operative planning with imaging can reduce the risk of operative complications.
- •Surgical resection is recommended in large tumors more than 4 cm in size in view of the risk of bleeding and malignancy mimicry.
- •Patient age, hormonal symptoms, history of non-adrenal malignancy, and biochemical test results should be considered in imaging diagnosis.
