    We describe an unusual case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the adrenals which presented as Addison's disease. Examination of tissue taken by computed tomography guided biopsy revealed a high grade B cell centroblastic lymphoma. The patient was treated with chemotherapy but died from invasive aspergillosis. Autopsy confirmed bilateral adrenal involvement by lymphoma.
