The association of chromosomal disorders with various neoplasms is well established. We report a case of 36 years old man who was referred for preoperative evaluation of functional status of “presumed” right adrenal mass. The patient was found to have clinical features of hypogonadism and further investigations confirmed the diagnosis of Klinefelter’s Syndrome. The patient proceeded to surgery and pathological examination of the removed mass revealed a mature retroperitoneal teratoma abutting the adrenal gland. This case demonstrates that patients with KS are at increased risk of extragonadal germ cell tumors unusual sites from the mediastinum and brain. Retroperitoneal teratoma in the adrenal gland region can be easily confused with adrenal related mass.
