The risk of tumours, including pheochromocytoma and gastrointestinal stromal tumour is higher in patients with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). The co-occurrence of these two tumours is rare, and most patients are symptomatic. In this case report we describe the case of an asymptomatic 42-year-old female patient with left adrenal mass and concurrent lesion in the jejunum, just distal to the ligament of Treitz. Both tumours were successfully simultaneously removed by totally robotic transperitoneal technique using da Vinci Robotic Surgical System Xi.
