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 Cushings syndrome or pheochromocytoma can be observed in adrenal incidentalomas. However, coexistence of Cushings 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 Cushings syndrome, urinary catecholamine metabolites were normal, but who histopathologically had pheochromocytoma diagnosis.
