Case Study
We report a case of a giant adrenal pseudocyst, found incidentally in a 45 year old female. Her CT scan showed a 7.5cm x 7.3cm suprarenal mass and she underwent a laparoscopic transperitoneal adrenalectomy. We report this case and review the literature regarding the diagnosis and management of adrenal pseudocysts.
