The pathogenesis is still controversy. To be the best, the reviewing English literature, only four cases concerning male patients have been reported in the worldwide so far. Therefore, this case may be the fifth case registered in the literature. Case Presentation: We describe a case of 65-year-old man presented abdominal extension and remittent pain developed. The CT scan and MR images of abdomen revealed a retroperitoneal cystic mass with homogenous enhancing mass measured about 9 by 6 by 3 cm with adjacent to the right adrenal gland. He underwent laparoscopic resection of the tumor with adrenectomy, and the PRMC-BM pathologically diagnosed. He was discharged the fourth post-operative day with no any complication. Conclusion: We present an additional case of PRMC-BM concerning male patient. The preoperative diagnosis for PRMC-BM is very difficult. Clinical practice for management with laparotomic or laparoscopic procedure comprises the diagnostic and resection curative approach with quite good prognosis with free from disease after regular follow-up.
