Masses involving the adrenal in the neonate are most commonly due to hemorrhage. The literature involving the neonatal adrenal reflects this propensity. Although there have been reports of newborns with neuroblastoma [1, 2] and other tumors [3], which are more common in older children, ultrasonographic descriptions of masses involving the adrenal secondary to such tumors are rare [1]. Within a 6-month span we have discovered a clinically unsuspected adrenal carcinoma and adrenal neuroblastoma.
