Myelolipoma is a rare benign tumour histologically composed of mature adipose tissue and haemopoietic cells. Most commonly it occurs in the adrenal gland, less frequently it is present in some extraadrenal locations. The vast majority of myelolipomas are asymptomatic and are diagnosed incidentally during imaging examinations of the abdomen for other reasons. That is why it falls into the category of so-called incidentalomas. The authors of the article present a case report of 54-year old man, in whom a large myelolipoma of the right suprarenal gland had been diagnosed and subsequently surgically removed. They provide basic knowledge about this tumour, whose origin is probably related to developmental disturbance of tissue histogenesis.
