Oncocytic adrenocortical carcinoma is an extremely rare tumor, with only 150 cases reported in the literature.
A 48-year-old male patient, with right adrenalectomy due to a 7-cm non-functional adrenal inciden- taloma.

It is rarely malignant, and the accepted treatment is laparoscopic adrenalectomy. In our case, two minor histological criteria classify it as a potentially malignant tumor.
