Adrenal myelolipoma is a rare adrenal gland benign tumor composed of mature adipose tissue and hematopoietic tissue. Very few cases have been reported. We report a case of 19-years-old female who presented with complaint of pain in the right lumbar region. Ultrasound abdomen showed right suprarenal mass. CT scan abdomen revealed a right adrenal gland measuring 6.4 × 4.3 × 5.5 cms with heterogenous attenuation. Contrast enhanced computerized tomography (CECT) abdomen showed right adrenal mass containing both fat and soft tissue elements, suggesting the possibility of myelolipoma. The mass was surgically removed and on histopathological examination, it was diagnosed as myelolipoma of right adrenal gland. Awareness regarding this entity is very essential to exclude surgical exploration or extensive surgery.
