This video presents the case of a patient presenting with a 7cm tumor that was diagnosed as a non-secreting adrenal tumor. An adrenalectomy was proposed after the CT-scan analysis. A robotic approach was performed. It allowed for the resection of a tumor located between the kidney and the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland was preserved. Pathological findings helped to evidence a schwannoma.
