Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is an extremely rare tumour. We are reporting a 45-year-male patient who had a history of sudden severe worsening epigastric pain and fullness in abdomen, with giddiness. The radiological investigations showed a large right suprarenal mass with extensive destruction and retroperitoneal haemorrhage, with extra capsular, periportal and liver metastases. Exploratory laparotomy was done for excisions of mass and surrounding tissue. On histopathological examination, diagnosis was given as Adreno Cortical Carcinoma with capsular, vascular, and soft tissue nodular involvement.
