138 Possible Causes for Myelolipomas

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    We present a case of a myelolipoma in conjunction with congenital adrenal hyperplasia secondary to 21-hydroxylase deficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Myelolipoma is an uncommon benign tumor of which the pathogenesis is unknown. It is rarely associated with endocrine disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nine previously reported cases of myelolipoma associated with endocrine dysfunction are reviewed with potential correlation of the hormonal imbalance to pathogenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    Experimental findings, as well as the frequent association of myelolipomas (usually small) with several chronic diseases, suggests that the adrenal myelolipoma is not a true[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We describe a case of a large myelolipoma (15 by 12 cm. maximum diameter) that was removed surgically and resembled clinically and semeiologically a malignant retroperitoneal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Laparotomy was performed and a 3.5 kg encapsulated tumour attached to the right adrenal gland was removed; histology revealed a giant myelolipoma.[bloodjournal.org]

  • Hibernoma

    We describe a hibernoma within the adrenal gland in close association with a myelolipoma that was excised for its solid enlarging characteristics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Adrenal; Hibernoma; Lipoma; Liposarcoma; Myelolipoma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency

    Abstract The case of a patient with erythrocyte pyruvate kinase (PK) deficiency hemolytic anemia leading to extramedullary hematopoiesis in a paravertebral myelolipoma is[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retroperitoneal Sarcoma

    Thus, diagnosis of adrenal myelolipoma was made.[ccij-online.org] Four distinct clinicopathological patterns of this tumor have been described - isolated adrenal myelolipoma, adrenal myelolipoma with hemorrhage, extra-adrenal myelolipoma[ijamhrjournal.org] Pathogenesis of adrenal myelolipomas is controversial.[ccij-online.org]

  • Shock

    Management of myelolipoma should be done on a case-to-case basis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conclusion: Adrenal myelolipoma might be diagnosed as a adjunction to other main causes of illness; furthermore, adrenal myelolipoma could be asymptomatic in lifetime.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemorrhagic shock due to adrenal myelolipoma, to our knowledge, was much less mentioned so far.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    Abstract We present a case of aldosterone-secreting adrenocortical carcinoma with concomitant myelolipoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case of myelolipoma associated with PA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The histological study showed an adrenal myelolipoma with hyperplasia of the adrenal cortex (zona glomerulosa) secondary to the pressure exerted by the large size of the myelolipoma[revistanefrologia.com]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    We discuss the etiology of myelolipoma and suggest that myelolipoma can develop in the course of endocrine hyperfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The literature on synchronous myelolipoma with adrenal adenoma, and myelolipoma within functional adrenal adenoma, is reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Co-occurrence of a functional black adenoma and a well-developed myelolipoma has not been reported in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage

    To our knowledge, there have been only 11 reported cases of ruptured adrenal myelolipoma in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histologic diagnosis was adrenal myelolipoma. No blood transfusion was required.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Adrenal myelolipomas are usually small and asymptomatic tumors discovered incidentally.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
