Cystic masses/lesions of the adrenal gland are becoming common as a result of improved imaging facilities and techniques. Adrenal pseudocysts are rare neoplasms which occur more frequently in young and middle-aged women. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is considered the gold standard treatment for benign adrenal lesions. This review describes our first experience and challenges of laparoscopic treatment of a large nonfunctional adrenal pseudocyst in a 41-year-old female. She presented with bothersome right flank pain and a computed tomography diagnosis of a calcified right adrenal cystic mass with benign features. She had laparoscopic right adrenalectomy, and the histopathological diagnosis of the cyst was confirmed as an adrenal pseudocyst.
