Background The incidence of extra-adrenal myelolipomas is rare.

Derek Zieker et al.

Myelolipomas are benign tumours and are composed of haematopoietic cells and adipose tissue [ 1 - 4 ].

Mostly myelolipomas are located in the adrenal gland.

Derek Zieker et al.

World Journal of Surgical Oncology 6 (7), 04 Jul 2008

Appearance of myelolipomas outside of the adrenal gland might be difficult to identify, since other soft tissue tumours such as well-differentiated liposarcomas appear morphological almost identical [ 1 - 3 , 6 - 10 ].
