Abstract

The association of an adrenal myelolipoma with a non-functioning adenoma is very rare. Herein,we report on such a case in an asymptomatic 64-year-old woman. To the best of our knowledge,there is only one other case of non-functioning adrenocortical adenoma associated with myelolipomain the same gland. Furthermore, only two other adenomas (mineral corticoids and corticosteroidproducing tumors) associated with myelolipomas have been reported, and both myelolipomas wereless than 1 cm in size. In conclusion, the 8.5 cm myelolipoma in our case is the largest comparedwith the three previously reported ones.
