Extra-Adrenal Myelolipoma: A Rare Entity in Paediatric Age Group

Chandrashekhar Anil Sohoni

Abstract


Extra-adrenal myelolipoma is a well-described entity in adult population, however it is extremely rare in paediatric age group. An unusual case of intra-peritoneal extra-adrenal myelolipoma in an 8-year-old child is presented here. The lesion was incidentally detected while evaluating the patient for spasmodic abdominal pain. Ultrasonography followed by CT scan and MRI imaging suggested the diagnosis which was confirmed by histopathology. A non-surgical approach was adopted and there was no progression of the lesion on follow-up imaging.
