Extra-adrenal myelolipoma happens in adrenal glands, and the thoracic location is extremely unusual. This is the first study involving 36 of patients with thoracic myelolipoma of English literature by investigating the clinical data, pathologic findings, radiological manifestation, and treatment strategy of all patients. Imageologic diagnosis including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography/computed tomography scans is useful to identify the feature of extra-adrenal myelolipoma. Pathologic analysis is an effective method to clarify the diagnosis. In view of the potential progressive enlargement of the lesion, most myelolipomas are removed by surgery, and this operation has frequently been accomplished by using video-assisted thoracic surgery.
