Extra-adrenal Myelolipoma (ML) is rare, non-functioning and generally asymptomatic tumor, composed by a mixture of adipose tissue and hematopoietic cells. It usually occurs in the adrenal glands and thoracic location is extremely unusual. We report the case of an 80-year-old woman without specific symptoms, with chest CT tomography showing incidentally a paratracheal mass (55 mm × 62 mm). Transthoracic fluoroscopic-guided fine needle biopsy was performed. Pathologic examination revealed ML, confirmed after surgical resection.
