  Abstract:
  Myelolipoma is a rare benign tumor composed of mature adipose tissue and haematopoietic cells. Although it is most commonly found in the adrenal gland, extraa- drenal myelolipomas have been found in various sites. We described a case of adren- al myelolipoma in a 72-year-old man with nodular hyperplasia of the prostate gland. During the preoperative examination ultrasound and CT-scanning showed a 9x8x8 cm mass in the right adrenal gland. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) under CT-guidance was obtained and cytological examination gave the diagnosis of myelolipoma. FNA has become a diagnostic method accepted worldwide and is reliable and simple for the diagnosis of myelolipoma.
