Abstract Objective: Adrenal leiomyomas are rare, bilateral ones being rarer. Literature available on these rare tumors documents only four cases in children less than 12 years of age. All cases in literature have been associated with AIDS or some other immunodeficiency state. Here we present a rare case of large, bilateral, adrenal leiomyomas in a child with no known immunodeficiency. An 11- year-old - female with a past history of herpes zoster (one year before the present complaints) was admitted with abdominal pain of two months duration. Radiology revealed bilateral adrenal neoplasms probably bilateral pheochromocytoma. Histology showed bilateral adrenal leiomyomas that were Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated. We report this case to draw attention towards the occurrence of a common pathological entity at an uncommon site in a setting of no definite known immunodeficiency.
