Abstract
The results and analysis of  the surgical treatment of 48 patients with adrenal tumors operated from 2009 to 2018 are shown. The indication for surgical treatment of adrenal gland masses is the clinical manifestation of the tumor, its hormonal activity and the high malignant potential of the tumor. Of the 48 (100%) cases of benign adrenal tumors, in most cases adenomas of the adrenal cortex - 26 (54.0%) patients. Then pheochromocytomas - 11 (23.0%), adrenal cysts - 7 (15.0%), adrenal hyperplasia - 3 (6.0%) and myelolipomas - 1 (2%). The laparotomic approach is the most convenient, effective and sparing approach, which improves the patient's quality of life in the postoperative period than the thoracoabdominal and translumbar approaches.
Key words: adrenal tumor, adrenalectomy.
