We report a patient with adrenal incidentaloma due to synchronous and isolated metastasis from lung cancer, which is a relatively rare condition. Close checkups for incidentaloma in oncologic patients are mandatory, leading to successful operation.

Purpose Several small studies have reported that an adrenalectomy for isolated adrenal metastasis in non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), along with a surgical resection for the primary lung cancer, can be curative. However, some suggest that the survival outcome among patients with a synchronous metastasis is poor. It remains unclear whether this treatment approach is warranted among those with synchronous metastasis. Methods A search for publications on adrenalectomy for NSCLC was performed via...
