Myelolipoma, an incidentaloma, is rarely encountered, especially in adrenal location. Huge myelolipomas are extremely rare and are of surgical emergency. Here we report a 33-year-old male who presented with pain in the right lumbar region with normal complete hemogram and serum hormonal markers. Ultrasonography and contrast-enhanced computed tomography abdomen revealed a huge well-defined homogeneous mass in the right adrenal region which was then removed surgically and histology revealed benign myelolipoma. Myelolipomas are benign and usually asymptomatic. But large lesions may have acute presentation and hence have to be dealt with utmost urgency along with proper imageological evaluation.
