A Case Report on Adrenal Incidentaloma-Assessment and Management
Adrenal masses are often discovered incidentally in imaging performed for some other reason unrelated to adrenal pathology.Screening for pheochromocytoma is essential in all cases due to its varied presentation. Careful preoperative assessment and perioperative management is vital to avoid morbidity. Here we are reporting a case of adrenal incidentaloma posted for laparoscopic adrenalectomy. The case was challenging to the anaesthesiologists in view of the fluctuating hemodynamic status intraoperatively and postoperatively.
