Adrenal tumors are cancerous or non-cancerous growths on the adrenal glands. It can originate from the cortex or the medulla, and may or may not have the capacity to secrete hormones. We report a case of a 76-year-old man who was diagnosed with an adrenal mass during abdominal pain investigation. His biochemical profile and magnetic resonance images are compatible with adrenocortical carcinoma, while the pathology reports are compatible with liposarcoma. So far, to the best of our knowledge, there is no report on steroid-secreting tumors.
