Neuroblastoma of the adrenal gland is an extremely rare tumor in adults. We present a case of 24-year-old male patient, who presented with left sided massive pleural effusion and mass at left upper abdomen. Imaging reported that a huge heterogeneously enhancing mass originating from left adrenal area extended to the left lower chest causing compression of the left lower lobe of lung and pleural effusion. The rarity of this tumor in adults prompted us to present this case.
