Myelolipoma is an uncommon asymptomatic, small, non-functional benign tumor composed of mature adipose tissue & hematopoietic elements and is most commonly found in the adrenal gland. We report a case of adrenal tumor in 53 year old male, which was discovered incidentally by computed tomographic imaging technique followed by surgical excision because of large size. The definite diagnosis of myelolipoma was suggested only by histopathological examination because of unique microscopic features.
Key words: myelolipoma, incidentaloma, adrenal gland.
