Adrenal Myelolipoma: A Case Presentation

Adrenal myelolipomas are non-functional benign tumors of hematopoietic and mature adipose tissue. Adrenal myelolipomas, which are generally detected in post-mortem examinations, have become more detectable thanks to evolution and frequent use of imaging techniques. This presentation elaborates on a case of 35-year old male patient presenting with no complaint but diagnosed with adrenal myelolipoma in histopathological examination following surrenalectomy operation for an adrenal mass incidentally detected on ultrasonography and computed tomography work-up.

Adrenal Myelolipom: Olgu Sunumu

Adrenal myelolipomlar hematopoetik ve matür yağ dokusundan oluşmuş non-fonksiyone benign tümörlerdir. Genelde otopsilerde tespit edilen adrenal myelolipomların, görüntüleme tekniklerinin gelişmesi ve sık kullanımı nedeni ile tespit edilebilirliği artmıştır. Bu sunumda 35 yaşında aktif yakınması olmayan erkek hastada ultrasonografi ve bilgisayarlı tomografi ile insidental olarak adrenal kitle tespit edilip sürrenalektomi operasyonu uygulanan ve histopatolojik inceleme sonucu adrenal myelolipom tanısı konulan olgu bildirilmektedir.
