Introduction: Myelolipoma is a rare benign adrenal tumor. Usually it is small, asymptomatic and unilateral. It is mostly discovered as an incidentaloma during autopsy. The incident detection of the tumor is increasing in frequency with widespread use of cross-sectional imaging such ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT). The most consistent complaint is abdominal pain caused by hemorrhage the tumor when the lesion became larger than 5 cm. In this paper, we reported symptomatic adrenal myelolipoma because of rarity and its considerable size.
