Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a well-established procedure. This is the case of a patient who has undergone a surgical laparoscopic procedure for a typical secreting right pheochromocytoma. The CT-scan shows a 6cm tumor. Preoperatively, virtual reality is used. The objective is to accurately locate the tumor, its relationships with the surrounding anatomical structures and the position of the adjacent organs, and to prepare the surgical intervention in ideal conditions.
