Myelolipomas are usually as ymptomatic and discovered incidentally or at autopsy. They are rare benign adrenal neoplasms, characterized by the presence of adipose tissue and elements of haematopoietic tissue in various degrees of differentiation. Occasionally these tumours may cause local symptoms or rupture. Not much literature is available on the association of gallstones with adrenal myelolipoma. It could be an incidental association or there may be a common underlying pathologic basis. We report clinical, radiologic and therapeutic aspects of a large myelolipoma of the right adrenal gland associated with gallstones in a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus and diabetic nephropathy.
