ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Adrenal Myelolipoma

History: 83 year old male presents with hematuria PMHx: NIDDM, HTN, HLP, COPD, skin cancer, stroke, macular degeneration, and mycosis fungoides PSHx: Left hip replacement, appendectomy, laparotomy, intestinal blockade repair

Findings: Patient noted to have a 3X3cm right adrenal mass with with a large fatty component and small focal areas of calcification.

Ddx: Adrenal Myelolipoma Adrenal Adenoma Adrenal Carcinoma Angiomyolipoma, Kidney Lipoma/Liposarcoma, Soft Tissue

Dxhow: Appearance on CT scan

No MeSH data available.


3x3cm heterogeneous right adrenal mass with a fatty component equal in grayscale to the subcutaneous fat.  Hounsfield units (HU) confirming this are displayed on the image. Fat is defined as HU of -50 and the -50.33 displayed on the image confirms the presence of fat.  Adrenal myelolipomas are defined by macroscopic fat visualized on CT.  Therefore, the HU of the central component, consistent with fat, confirms the diagnosis in this case.
