LOPEZ MARTIN, Leticia; GARCIA CARDOSO, Juan Vicente; GOMEZ MUNOZ, Jesús  and  GONZALEZ ENGUITA, Carmen. Adrenal myelolipoma: Contribution of a case and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.10, pp.880-883. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report the case of a myelolipoma of the adrenal glands. Method/results: The patient is a 29 year old who is diagnosed with an adrenal adenoma during a review in endocrinology. He underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy. The pathological study confirmed the diagnosis of adrenal myelolipoma. Conclusions: The myelolipoma is a rare tumor composed of hematopoietic elements in different maturation stages and without histological changes, combined with mature adipose tissue in varying proportions. Most are incidental findings during radiologic complementary. Treatment should be tailored to each particular case. Surgery is indicated when the mass exceeds the size 4-6 cm or when it is functioning.

Keywords : Myelolipoma; Adrenal adenoma; Benign tumour.
