Abstract Adrenal myelolipomas are benign neoplasms consisting of hematopoietic cellular elements and adipose tissue. They are uncommon, found in 0.4\% to 1\% of the population at autopsy. Extra-adrenal myelolipomas (EM) are extremely rare with fewer than 50 cases reported. We describe the first case of bilateral EM of the renal sinus. They are difficult to diagnose on imaging alone when arising in this location and biopsies may not yield a definitive answer. Management options include both conservative and surgical approaches depending upon the certainty of the diagnosis, progression of the patient's symptoms and evidence of growth.
