Adrenal Myelolipoma-CT

Large 11.4 x 9.1cm lesion in the right suprarenal region with mixed density  predominately fatty attenuation. Lesion is inseparable from right adrenal and displaces inferior vena cava. These findings indicate possible adrenal myeloplipoma. 

Adrenal myelolipoma is a rare benign neoplasm composed of mature adipose tissue and a variable amount of hematopoietic elements. Most lesions are small and asymptomatic, discovered incidentally at autopsy or on imaging studies performed for other reasons. Most tumors are unilateral but show no predilection to one particular side. Tumor size varies from several millimeters to more than 30 cm.
