ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: MYELOLIPOMA

History: 89 year old woman with CHF who had questionable pulmonary nodule on chest radiograph which prompted a CT exam.

Findings: The lungs were negative for pulmonary nodule or any acute cardiopulmonary abnormality (CHF was successfully treated prior to scan). Incidental finding of a well circumscribed, heterogeneous mass seen in the right adrenal fossa. This measured 5.0 x 4.0 x 5.5 cm. There is macroscopic fat (HU= - 50 ) seen through most of this mass with some areas of soft tissue density. No calcification is identified. There is a normal left adrenal gland. Also identified are multiple hepatic cysts demonstrating fluid attenuation (HU= 11 ), imperceptible walls and no lesion enhancement, indicating simple cysts.

Ddx: Myelolipoma Myelolipoma Myelolipoma Adrenal Adenoma (not likely given appearance) Liposarcoma (very rare)

Exam: NA

No MeSH data available.
