Ectopic adrenal tissue is a benign lesion generally determined incidentally during a surgical intervention applied for another reason. This tissue may be present along the path of the testicles and groin discovered during surgery. While the condition has been mainly reported in the pediatric population, it is very rarely reported in adults. The aim of this study was to present an adult patient with ectopic adrenal tissue which was determined incidentally within an indirect inguinal hernia sac.
Keywords: Adrenal glands, ectopic tissue, hernia sac, adult.
