The ultrasound and CT findings in two patients with hemangioma of the adrenal gland are presented. Ultrasound showed large masses with heterogeneous nonspecific structural pattern. Unenhanced CT demonstrated lesions with hypodense centers and thick irregular peripheries with higher density. A few small peripheral calcifications were noted in one patient. Following contrast medium injection, patchy enhancement of the peripheral zone of the tumor was seen in both cases.
