A 79-year-old presented with pain and swelling over the abdomen for 1 month. On evaluation, the patient was found to have a large lipid density-enhancing lesion with a solid component within it in the right upper quadrant suggestive of adrenal myelolipoma. The patient underwent open adrenalectomy with the removal of the mass measuring 28 × 24 cm and weighing 3.5 kg. In view of our case, perhaps it would be wise to operate all myelolipomas before they attain monstrous size, making surgery difficult.
