Abstract

Adrenal collision tumors are rare clinical entities referring to separate coexisting adjacent tumors involving an adrenal gland with sharp demarcation between the two and without a substantial histologic admixture at the interface. Most of the adrenal collision tumors described are combinations of adenoma and metastasis or adenoma and myelolipoma. We report two cases of a 63-year-old male and a 76-year-old female patient with a presumable exceedingly rare adrenal hemangioma-adenoma collision tumor. To our knowledge, only two reports of a collision tumor comprising an adrenal hemangioma and an adenoma have been described in literature.
