Introduction: Adrenal lesions as such are very rare conditions, which are incidentally detected through an imaging procedure, performed for reasons unrelated to adrenal dysfunction or suspected dysfunction and are known as adrenal incidentalomas.1 Its prevalence ranges from 1.4% to 2.9% worldwide. We report a series of three cases of adrenal lesions received at our hospital between the years 2011 and 2016.
Case series: In a series of three cases, we found that there was one case of Adrenal cortical adenoma, one case of nodular hyperplasia of adrenal gland and one case of adrenocortical carcinoma. Majority of the tumors were seen in the age group of 20-40 years with male preponderance and only 42.8% were detected coincidentally on imaging.
Conclusion: The three cases are reported here for their rarity of presentation.

Keywords: Adrenal tumours, Adrenal incidentaloma, Adrenocortical carcinomas.
