|Abstract:||Two cases of nonfunctioning adrenocortical adenoma are herein reported. The adrenal tumor was found incidentally by computed tomography in both patients. Preoperative evaluation revealed that both patients had neither abnormal values in a variety of adrenal function studies nor any recognizable clinical signs associated with adrenal tumor. Following a definitive diagnosis of nonfunctioning adrenal tumors, surgical extirpation was performed in both cases. Histopathological finding was adrenocortical adenoma. Nonfunctioning adrenocortical tumor will be found more frequently with the increasing use of computed tomography in ordinary clinical practice. The management of nonfunctioning adrenocortical tumor is briefly discussed.|
