A case report of unsuspected adrenal carcinoma with pulmonary artery obstruction in a young girl who was admitted with recurrent episodes of hypotension is presented. Computed tomography (CT) scans demonstrated a large right adrenal mass extending into the inferior vena cava (IVC), right atrium, right ventricle and right pulmonary artery. There are many case reports in literature documenting IVC and right atrial thrombus in patients with adrenal carcinoma. To our knowledge, this is the first case report specifically documenting pulmonary infarction secondary to tumour extension into the pulmonary artery.
