Background: Myelolipoma is one of the rare benign tumors of adrenal gland containing lipid and hematopoietic tissues. While the tumor is often detected incidentally, recently it can be diagnosed by modern radiological methods.

Case report: Thepresent study is the report of a 58year old man suffering from mild hypertension who had been referred to an endocrine clinic for the investigation of his right adrenal gland mass. The adrenal mass was detected incidentally through abdominal sonography when he was investigated for his chief complaint of epigastric pain. In adrenal CT scan, it was shown that a fat density mass between superior pole of right kidney and liver was attached to the internal side of right adrenal gland.

Conclusion: Since adrenal myelolipoma is a nonfunctional mass with no hormonal secretion, it could be diagnosed efficiently through radiology rather than the conventional endocrine tests. 

Keywords: Myelolipoma, Adrenal gland, Benign tumors
