Current guidelines for follow-up of adrenal incidentalomas are extensive and hampered by lack of follow-up studies. We tested the hypothesis that small lipid-rich adrenal incidentalomas, initially characterized by tumor size < 40 mm and < 10 Hounsfield Units (HU) on unenhanced computed tomography (CT) may not demon-strate excessive growth / hormonal hypersecretion on follow-up.
