Case Discussion

A case of colorectal cancer with incidentally noted sizable exophytic right renal lesion with areas of fat density, possibly representing an angiomyolipoma. US-guided biopsy proved this mass was an angiomyolipoma and was performed to exclude other possibilities such as a fat containing renal cell carcinoma or renal metastasis. Follow-up has also shown it almost stable for 5 years.
