A 38 year old woman who presented with right flank pain of unclear aetiology. Imaging studies demonstrated a cystic mass in the right upper pole of the kidney causing the ureteropelvic junction obstruction with a with a significant proximal urinary tract dilatation. She underwent a careful excision of the cyst and the pathological examination confirmed a hydatid cyst (HC) of the right adrenal gland. We describe the radiological and perioperative findings of this rare case. We have also reviewed the recent medical literature of similar case reports.
