An adrenal lipoma is an extremely rare macroscopic fat-containing adrenal lesion, with only a handful of cases described in the literature 1.
Like other lipomas elsewhere in the body, they are benign tumors of mesenchymal origin that contain mature fatty tissue and are surrounded by a fibrous capsule.
Appears as a well-circumscribed, homogeneous, fatty lesion with minimal or no soft-tissue attenuation / signal within the lesion.
