ملخص

Adrenal myelolipoma is a rare and benign tumour composed of mature adipose tissue and haematopoietic elements that resemble bone marrow. It is mostly discovered incidentally on imaging of abdomen done for non adrenal related reasons or at autopsy. Usually asymptomatic, but has been reported to present with symptoms such as flank pain resulting from tumour bulk, necrosis or spontaneous retroperitoneal haemorrhage. Symptomatic tumours, growing tumours or tumours larger than 10 cm should be excised surgically. We report cases of 3 male patients presenting with flank pain and upper pole renal masses.All three were treated surgically with adrenalectomy. Myelolipoma was confirmed in all three on histology.
