The clinical management and histopathological diagnosis of the resected adrenal mass has therefore become increasingly important. When surgical pathologists evaluate a resected adrenal mass of the patients with adrenal incidentaloma, it is very important to evaluate the following pathological aspects; 1. the mass is malignant or not? and 2. the mass is of adrenocortical origin or not.
