Adrenal myelolipoma, which is a nonfunctional tumor, may be found coincidentally in patients affected by Cushing's syndrome, hyperaldosteronism, pheochromocytoma, adrenogenital syndrome, and virilization (3,4,5).
These hyperplastic adrenal rests are referred to as testicular "tumors" of adrenogenital syndrome (TTAGS).
Even though myelolipomas are hormonally inactive, but about 10% cases are associated with endocrinopathies, such as Cushing's syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Conn's syndrome, pheochromocytoma, hyperparathyroidism or adrenogenital syndromes.
