  • Adrenal 'incidentalomas' are commonly found on body imaging, and treatment of these lesions 4 cm-6 cm in size is controversial. Most of these lesions are benign adrenal cortical adenomas. Lymphoma is a rare disease manifestation in the adrenal gland, and the overwhelming majority are metastatic lesions. Hodgkin lymphoma has never been reported as a primary adrenal lesion. We present a very unique case report of a 5 cm adrenal 'incidentaloma' that represents the first reported case of primary Hodgkin lymphoma in the adrenal gland.
