Abstract

Adrenal masses (AMs) are often discovered incidentally and are then termed adrenal incidentalomas (AIs). They are often discovered after an imaging procedure is performed that is unrelated to the adrenal gland. Usually, the patient has no signs of hormonal excess or obvious underlying malignancy. Incidence has been increasing proportionally to the use of radiographic imaging[1].

Gallstones are concretions that form in the biliary tract, usually in the gall bladder. The development is insidious, and they may remain asymptomatic for decades. Migration of gallstones may lead to occlusion of the biliary and pancreatic ducts, causing pain (biliary colic) and producing acute complications, such as acute cholecystitis, ascending cholangitis, or acute pancreatitis[2].
