Adrenal abscess

An adrenal abscess is a rare pus filled benign lesion of the adrenal gland. The abscess usually accumulates secondary to an acute infection elsewhere in the body which has spread through the bloodstream to the adrenal glands.It would be quite unusual to detect an adrenal abscess on any imaging outside of a hospital setting, as patients with an infection that has entered into the bloodstream would be very ill.
