Adrenal metastases are more frecuent than primary adrenal carcinoma. The most frequent are, in this order: breast and lung cancer, stomach and kidney carcinomas, adrenal gland contralateral tumors and melanoma. Less frequent are tumours of the bladder, colon, esophagus, gall bladder, liver, pancreas, prostate, stomach and uterus. The rest of the tumours rarely spread toward adrenal glands. The metastases to the adrenal glands caused by sarcomas are rare and normaly they happen in the constest of a masive metastases afecting several organs at the same time. We present a case of a patient affected by adrenal metastases of Ewing´s sarcoma who has been referred to us for surgical treatment because it is a unique metastases (there is no sing of more illnesses in other organs at the time of the exploration).
