Abstract

Renal angiomyolipomas are uncommon benign neoplasms composed of mature adipose tissue, thick-walled blood vessels and smooth muscle in varying proportions, which are found in more than half of the patients with tuberous sclerosis. When associated with tuberous sclerosis, they are usually small, bilateral and multifocal. We present a case of bilateral renal angiomyolipoma with tuberous sclerosis in a 33-year-old female.
