Ectopic adrenal rests (EAT) are rare lesions comprising predominantly adrenocortical tissue in various locations. Here, we report a case of EAT in the paratubal location which was incidentally detected in a salpingo-oophorectomy specimen from a 21-year-old female. The identification of these lesions is extremely essential as it can be associated with hyperplasia and neoplasia.
