Abstract

We report the helical computed tomographic findings of a symptomatic giant (11 cm) adrenal myelolipoma with spontaneous extracapsular hemorrhage. Narrow collimation (3 mm) imaging and three-dimensional reconstructions were useful to fully characterize the components and location of the lesion. A literature search showed a striking male and right-sided predominance for spontaneously hemorrhagic myelolipomas.
