We have presented our ten years experience in the surgical management of adrenal tumors. Patients presenting with hypertension (9) are normotensive following the removal of the offending adrenal tumor. One patient had an extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma, one had a huge organized adrenal hematoma and one patient has a non-functional tumor. The diagnosis and management of endocrine tumors is a challenge to the clinician.
