Abstract

Myelolipoma of the adrenal gland is a rare, benign and endocrinologically inactive tumor. The characteristic histological picture shows mature adipose tissue and normal hematopoietic elements that resemble bone marrow. These tumors are clinically quiescent and most of the cases are detected during imaging procedures obtained for other reasons. Very rarely these tumors give rise to symptoms, usually abdominal pain due to tumor enlargement. Most of them occur unilaterally but rarely bilateral occurrences have been reported in literature. We report a rare case of bilateral adrenal myelolipoma along with management strategies and review of literature
