Adrenal cavernous hemangiomas are a rare, benign, and non-functional tumor. We report a case of a 62-year-old male who presented with right upper quadrant and flank pain. Physical examination revealed a fullness of the right upper quadrant. Both computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging suggested a hemangioma originating from the liver. During angiography with the intent of embolization, it was discovered that the vascular supply was consistent with an adrenal mass rather than a hepatic origin. The patient was referred to Urology and underwent curative right open adrenalectomy and nephrectomy. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of an adrenal cavernous hemangioma.
