Adrenal gland lymphangiomas are benign, non-functional, and uncommon tumors of lymphatic tissue and with a cyst component. The majority of these are asymptomatic and are discovered incidentally. We present the case of an adrenal gland lymphangioma in a 24-year-old female with a history of high blood pressure, headaches, and anxiety of nearly 2 years in whom a routine ultrasound exam revealed a cyst tumor of right adrenal gland confirmed by computer tomography (CT) scan. Surgery was performed and lymphangioma of adrenal gland was the pathologist’s report. The patient’s clinical symptoms disappeared.

Key words: Lymphangioma, hygroma, adrenal gland cyst tumor.
