A case report on 111In chloride bone marrow scintigraphy in management of adrenal myelolipoma.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(8):e14625

Pathology, The Cancer Institute Hospital of the Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research.

Rationale: Adrenal myelolipoma is a benign hormone-inactive tumor composed of hematopoietic tissue and mature adipose tissue. Because this tumor tends to be rich in fat, in many cases it can be diagnosed based on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings alone. However, in the presence of much necrosis, calcification and hematopoietic tissue and/or the absence of much fat, and in cases with tumor apoplexy, this tumor becomes difficult to differentiate from other tumors.

Renal and adrenal masses containing fat at MRI: Proposed nomenclature by the society of abdominal radiology disease-focused panel on renal cell carcinoma.

J Magn Reson Imaging 2019 Apr 28;49(4):917-926. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

This article proposes a consensus nomenclature for fat-containing renal and adrenal masses at MRI to reduce variability, improve understanding, and enhance communication when describing imaging findings. The MRI appearance of "macroscopic fat" occurs due to a sufficient number of aggregated adipocytes and results in one or more of: 1) intratumoral signal intensity (SI) loss using fat-suppression techniques, or 2) chemical shift artifact of the second kind causing linear or curvilinear India-ink (etching) artifact within or at the periphery of a mass at macroscopic fat-water interfaces. "Macroscopic fat" is most commonly observed in adrenal myelolipoma and renal angiomyolipoma (AML) and only rarely encountered in other adrenal cortical tumors and renal cell carcinomas (RCC).

Myelolipoma of the Pelvis: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Front Oncol 2018 3;8:251. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

Department of Pathology, Detroit Medical Centre, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI, United States.

Myelolipomas are uncommon, benign tumors which typically occur in the adrenal glands and consist of mature adipose tissue and benign hematopoietic components. Myelolipomas can occur outside of the adrenal glands, but the presacral region, retroperitoneum, pelvis, and mediastinum are unusual locations for these tumors. It is important to recognize this entity in these locations since they can attain massive sizes leading to pressure symptoms and need to be differentiated from the malignant tumors like liposarcomas.

Adrenal Hemangioma Definite Diagnosis on CT, MRI, and FDG PET in a Patient With Primary Lung Cancer.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Jun;43(6):e192-e194

Distinguishing adrenal incidentalomas (5% of all abdominal CT scans) from metastasis is a frequent diagnostic challenge in primary malignancies with a propensity for adrenal spread, such as lung cancer. Adrenal myelolipoma and adenoma can be definitively characterized as benign by demonstrating gross and microscopic fat, respectively, on CT and MRI and an absence of abnormal uptake on PET. Unfortunately, adrenal sampling is frequently necessary in indeterminate cases for adequate staging of extra-adrenal primary malignancy. Read More

Introduction: Adrenal myelolipoma is an invariably benign neoplasm of the adrenal gland that is the second most common primary adrenal incidentaloma following adrenocortical adenomas. It is composed of elements of adipose tissue and extramedullary hematopoiesis. Hypotheses on stem cells and hormonal factors have been formulated regarding its pathogenesis that is still obscure.

Appearance of Adrenal Myelolipomas on 2-deoxy-2-(F) fluoro-D-glucose Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography.

World J Nucl Med 2017 Oct-Dec;16(4):271-274

The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

With the widespread use of 2-deoxy-2-(F) fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) in oncologic imaging, it has become increasingly important for physicians who interpret FDG PET/CT scans to confidently recognize the spectrum of incidentally encountered benign and malignant findings. The adrenal glands represent an interesting nexus of multiple rare and common benign intrinsic tumors as well as metastases from a variety of primary malignancies. Given the breadth of adrenal gland pathology, careful description of the FDG PET/CT appearance of these pathologies is of value to help reduce misinterpretation. Read More

Adrenal myelolipoma(s) as presenting manifestation of subclinical Cushing's disease (eutopic ACTH-dependent Cushing's syndrome).

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Aug 16;2017. Epub 2017 Aug 16.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, IPGME&R/SSKM Hospital, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Primary adrenal myelolipomas, relatively rare benign tumours of the adrenal cortex are typically unilateral, hormonally inactive and asymptomatic, hence often diagnosed as 'adrenal incidentaloma'. Bilateral adrenal myelolipomas, in particular, may be associated with underlying endocrinopathies associated with elevated circulating adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) concentration. Subclinical cortisol hypersecretion, irrespective of its ACTH dependency, does not manifest typical clinical phenotype of hypercortisolemia, and thus termed subclinical Cushing's syndrome. Read More

Review of primary extra-adrenal myelolipoma of the thorax.

J Surg Res 2017 01 31;207:131-137. Epub 2016 Aug 31.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, West-China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China. Electronic address:

Extra-adrenal myelolipoma happens in adrenal glands, and the thoracic location is extremely unusual. This is the first study involving 36 of patients with thoracic myelolipoma of English literature by investigating the clinical data, pathologic findings, radiological manifestation, and treatment strategy of all patients. Imageologic diagnosis including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography/computed tomography scans is useful to identify the feature of extra-adrenal myelolipoma.

Bilateral adrenal myelolipoma in Cushing's disease: a relook into the role of corticotropin in adrenal tumourigenesis.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Jun 15;2016. Epub 2016 Jun 15.

Department of Endocrinology & Metabolism, IPGME&R/SSKM Hospital, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Adrenal myelolipomas are infrequently encountered benign tumours of unknown aetiology. In the majority of cases they are unilateral, and clinically and hormonally silent, only requiring periodic follow-up. However, bilateral adrenal myelolipomas are sometimes associated with endocrine disorders and warrant appropriate evaluation. Read More

Fat-containing Retroperitoneal Lesions: Imaging Characteristics, Localization, and Differential Diagnosis.

Radiographics 2016 May-Jun;36(3):710-34

From the Department of Radiology, University of Utah, 30 North 1900 East, 1A71, Salt Lake City, UT 84132 (A.M.S., M.R., P.J.W.); Imaging Department, U.S. Air Force Academy Medical Clinic, USAF Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo (M.T.); Department of Radiology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Tex (K.M.E.); and Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.).

The complex anatomy of the retroperitoneum is reflected in the spectrum of neoplastic and nonneoplastic conditions that can occur in the retroperitoneum and appear as soft-tissue masses. The presence of fat within a retroperitoneal lesion is helpful in refining the differential diagnosis. Fat is easily recognized because of its characteristic imaging appearance. Read More

Indian J Cancer 2015 Jul-Sep;52(3):475-8

Department of Surgery, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India.

Introduction: Most of the adrenal masses are discovered incidentally by imaging techniques for reasons unrelated to adrenal diseases. Treatment is based on various factors such as, nature of adrenal mass, age of presentation, size of tumor, and the functional status of tumor. We report a series of 14 consecutive cases of adrenal tumors treated in a single surgical unit in our hospital. Read More

Yu Yang, Lin-Yang Ye, Bo Yu, Jia-Xiang Guo, Qian Liu, Department of Urology, First Affiliated Hospital of PLA General Hospital, Beijing 100037, China.

Primary adrenal myelolipoma is a rare, non-functioning adrenal benign tumor that is composed of mature adipose tissue and a variable amount of haemopoietic elements. Clinically, it is difficult to get diagnosed with adrenal myelolipoma because the patient usually doesn't have obvious symptoms and signs in early stage. In the present study, two cases of primary bilateral adrenal myelolipomas are reported. Read More
