Adrenal leiomyomas (AL)s are rare benign tumors; only 16 cases have been reported overall including the adult population, three of which had bilateral involvement . In the paediatric age group, only four cases have been reported, two being bilateral [1, 2]. ALs are usually asymptomatic. They can be associated with immunodeficiency. We report a paediatric case of bilateral large multilobed AL. The literature on paediatric ALs has also been reviewed.
An 11-year-old girl was presented with intermittent chest and abdominal pain for a year. The child was normotensive. She had scars of healed cutaneous viral infection on the right side of the chest. The abdomen was soft with no palpable lump.
