Presacral myelolipoma. A case report and literature review



Presacral myelolipoma. A case report and literature review



Neuroradiology Journal 27(6): 764-769



Many reports have described adrenal myelolipomas but there have been only a few reports of extra-adrenal myelolipomas. We describe a 74-year-old woman who came to our observation for MRI of the lumbar spine for typical lumbar back pain. In addition to signs of mild scoliosis and spondylo disc arthrosis, MR imaging revealed a presacral mass showing a heterogeneously high signal in all pulse sequences and almost completely suppressed on inversion recovery sequences for fat tissue. CT imaging confirmed the fatty nature of the lesion and no signs of bone involvement. These findings were most consistent with a diagnosis of a rare presacral myelolipoma as confirmed at histopathologic analysis. This work reports a case of one of the rarest presacral masses, emphasizing the role of imaging in the differential diagnosis of other presacral masses.
