Giant adrenal myelolipoma is a rare entity. It becomes evident due to symptoms of dragging sensation and discomfort or pain. We report hereby a rare case report giant adrenal myelolipoma. A 51-year-old female presented with pain in the right upper abdomen, dull aching, non radiating, no aggravating, or relieving factor present. It was associated with a lump in the right upper abdomen. Computed tomography of the abdomen suggested a 20 cm × 18 cm well encapsulated, hypodense mass, arising from right suprarenal gland inferior to the right lobe of the liver, pushing right kidney inferiorly, and inferior vena cava medially. It showed predominantly fat component and a small area of soft-tissue attenuation with maintained adjacent fat planes, suggestive of right adrenal myelolipoma. After preoperative stabilization, excision of right adrenal myelolipoma was done under general anesthesia and epidural anesthesia.
