Metastases to adrenal glands from solid tumors are fairly common. The incidence varies from 17.6% to 35% in lung primaries and 13-27% in other malignancies. Most of these lesions are clinically occult. Historically, the role of radiotherapy was limited to palliation of pain in symptomatic lesions. However, with the advent of more conformal techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy, the focus has shifted to treatment of such lesions with curative intent in selected situations. We treated a patient of non-small cell lung cancer with solitary adrenal metastasis, following partial response to chemotherapy. The adrenal lesion was treated with CyberKnife while the lung lesion was treated with intensity modulated radiotherapy, both with curative intent.
