A 21 year-old female arrived in the emergency room following a motor vehicle accident. Upon her arrival, she was sent to CT imaging to ensure there was no internal hemorrhaging. Unbeknownst to the patient and her medical team, she was harboring a 7 cm retroperitoneal mass. This incidental finding had multiple alternative cancer diagnoses including lymphoma, sarcoma and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. Immunohistochemical stains proved this mass to be an adrenocortical carcinoma, which is an extremely rare finding in a young female. The patient underwent a total left adrenalectomy and is expected to survive this otherwise aggressive cancer because of the early finding.
