Abstract

Oncocytic adrenocortical neoplasm is a rare adrenal tumour that usually follows a benign clinical course. In some cases, however, these tumours have exhibited malignant behaviour. Here, we present the first published case showing bulk fat within an oncocytic adrenocortical neoplasm on CT and MRI, a finding that mimics fat within an adrenal myelolipoma. The distinction between these entities is important, as the current suggested management of an oncocytic adrenocortical neoplasm is resection with subsequent imaging surveillance.
