Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Myelolipomas are very rare benign tumours composed of an admixture of mature adipose tissue and normal haematopoietic cells. Although they are most commonly found in the adrenal glands, extra-adrenal myelolipomas are documented. We described a case of myelolipoma arising in the lung in a 52-year-old man. The lesion was found incidentally in association with a carcinoid. To our knowledge, this is the second instance of this neoplasm presenting as a lung lesion, and the first case associated with bronchial carcinoid. Pathogenesis and aetiology of myelolipomas are referred to in this paper with special regard to the clinical and pathological findings.
