Bottom Line: Primary adrenal lymphoma is a very rare extranodal lymphoma; its clinical features consist of a high incidence of bilateral adrenal involvement and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.A 52-yr-old man presented with fever and progressive fatigue for 3 months.Computed tomography (CT) scans of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated large bilateral adrenal masses, and a needle biopsy of the left adrenal mass revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

ABSTRACT
Primary adrenal lymphoma is a very rare extranodal lymphoma; its clinical features consist of a high incidence of bilateral adrenal involvement and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. We report a patient with primary bilateral adrenal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who achieved complete remission with R-CHOP (rituximab-cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) chemotherapy. A 52-yr-old man presented with fever and progressive fatigue for 3 months. Computed tomography (CT) scans of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated large bilateral adrenal masses, and a needle biopsy of the left adrenal mass revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. After 6 cycles of R-CHOP chemotherapy, CT scans showed no residual disease. To our knowledge, this is the second report to date of a patient with primary bilateral adrenal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who achieved complete remission using R-CHOP chemotherapy.
