Solitary adrenal metastasis is often difficult to distinguish from benign adrenal tumor using only plain computed tomography (CT) scanning. We describe a solitary left adrenal gland mass in a patient who had undergone simultaneous gastrectomy and right nephrectomy for advanced gastric cancer and renal cell carcinoma (RCC), respectively. Contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasonography (CE-EUS) findings indicated a hypervascular adrenal mass, and EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) revealed clear cell carcinoma. Adrenalectomy confirmed metastatic clear cell carcinoma of the kidney.
