Adrenal pseudotumors can have many origins. We report the case of a gastric subcardial diverticulum misdiagnosed as a left adrenal cystic lesion on magnetic resonance imaging. A retrospective study of a previous computed tomography scan detected a previously unnoticed gastric diverticulum.

The embryology, clinical aspects, and explanation of the misdiagnosis are exposed.
