Bhawan Nangarwal, Devinder Kuntel, Rajesh Godara, Pradeep Garg, Meenu Gill.

Abstract
Myelolipoma is an uncommon, lipomatous tumor most commonly found in adrenal gland, though rare extra-adrenal presentations have also been documented. When associated with adrenal glands; this tumor is generally benign, non-secreting, asymptomatic and usually discovered incidentally on imaging carried out for various non-adrenal symptoms. Histopathologically these tumors show mature adipocytes along with haematopoietic cells. We review a case of adrenal mass in an elderly male patient presenting with right flank pain. Tumor was excised due to its huge dimensions and histopathology of adrenelectomy specimen confirmed myelolipoma.

Key words: myelolipoma, adrenal, suprarenal
