Introduction: Adrenal incidentalomas are a rare but vexing problem for the endocrinologist. There are no Indian data on the subject. The study objective was to look at the characteristics of a group of patients with adrenal incidentaloma from Eastern India. Material And Methods: Retrospective study in a private endocrinology clinic handling refered case in 23 patients seen between 1996 and 2003. Measurements: Clinical and radiological outcome measures. Results: 12 patients were followed up and 11 patients were advised surgery. Of the 8 patients who eventually had surgery, 5 had adrenal adenoma, 2 had adrenal carcinoma and 1 had fat necrosis following pancreatitis. Persistent pain was taken as an indication for surgery. Of the patients advised follow up, 2 were diagnosed adrenal histoplasmosis and one as probable tuberculosis. Conclusions FANC was a good tool in hypodense lesions of probable infective aetiology. Leison size was important in decision making but other imaging information was not. Poorly localized pain was an indication for surgery and gave good results.
