  • Figure 1
    Giant adrenal myelolipoma

    CT scout image shows a downward dislocation of the left kidney (black arrow) and a cranial displacement of the transverse and descendant colon. The left psoas margin is clearly visualised (yellow arrow).

     
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Giant adrenal myelolipoma

    CT image illustrates splenic peduncle displaced from its normal position by a fat-density lesion (yellow arrow). Note the presence of a hepatic biliary cyst (black arrow).
