Haemangiomas of adrenal gland are rare, non-functioning benign tumours with less than 100 cases documented in literature. They are difficult to diagnose preoperatively and are often clinically mistaken for other benign adrenal lesions like myelolipoma, ganglioneuroma and non-functional pheochromocytoma. We report a case of a 38-year-old male with haemangioma of the adrenal gland which presented exclusively with pain in the right side of the abdomen.
