Abstract Adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy. Patients present either with a functional tumor or secondary to mass effect. In non-functioning tumors, the tumor size often exceeds 5 cm by the time of diagnosis, and tumor thrombus can occur. We report on a case of a small non-functioning ACC causing a large tumor thrombus in the inferior vena cava.
