ADRENAL MYELOLIPOMA ASSOCIATED WITH CHOLELITHIASIS- A CASE REPORTAbstract
Adrenal myelolipomas are rare benign endocrinologically inactive tumor composed of mature adipose tissue and hematopoietic cells in varying proportions. Most lesions are small, unilateral and asymptomatic, discovered incidentally at autopsy or on imaging studies performed for other reasons. Its characteristic appearance on sonography and computed tomography enables preoperative diagnosis with a high degree of safety and accuracy. The association of adrenal myelolipoma with cholelithiasis is not well documented in the literature. It could be an incidental association or there may be a common underlying pathologic basis. Here we report a rare case of adrenal myelolipoma in a 30-year old woman. Our case was unusual because of large size, symptomatic presentation and associated gall stones.
