Adrenal incidentalomas are masses accidentally discovered while conducting radiological examinations for other purposes. A major part of adrenal incidentalomas are non-functional adenomas. Silently developing Cushing’s syndrome or pheochromocytoma can be observed in adrenal incidentalomas. However, coexistence of Cushing’s syndrome and pheochromocytoma at the same time in the same case is quite rare. In the present study, an atypical adrenal incidentaloma case is presented, whose laboratory examinations were compatible with Subclinical Cushing’s syndrome, urinary catecholamine metabolites were normal, but who histopathologically had pheochromocytoma diagnosis.

Key words: Pheochromocytoma, Adrenal incidentaloma,Subclinical cushing’s syndrome
