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.[] Abstract Myelolipoma is an uncommon benign tumor of which the pathogenesis is unknown. It is rarely associated with endocrine disorders.[] Nine previously reported cases of myelolipoma associated with endocrine dysfunction are reviewed with potential correlation of the hormonal imbalance to pathogenesis.[]

  • 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[] 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[]

  • 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.[]

  • Hibernoma

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

  • 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[]

  • Retroperitoneal Sarcoma

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

  • Shock

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

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    Abstract We present a case of aldosterone-secreting adrenocortical carcinoma with concomitant myelolipoma.[] Here, we report a case of myelolipoma associated with PA.[] 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[]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

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

  • Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage

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