Myelolipoma is a benign tumour consisting of mature fat with scattered foci of haematopoietic elements resembling bone marrow. Extra-adrenal myelolipomas are an infrequent pattern of presentation. We report the case of a 64-year-old woman who presented a heterogeneous 1.4×2.5×3 cm paravertebral thoracic mass detected by chest tomography during the study of a leukocytosis of unknown aetiology. The CT findings and pathology revealed the diagnosis of myelolipoma.
