Renal angiomyolipoma


Epigastric pain.

Patient Data

Age: 25 years
Gender: Female

Large, exophytic heterogeneous rounded and well defined right renal mass, arising from its upper pole, predominantly of fat attenuation.  The lesion measures 4.5 x 4.5 x 5 cm, mostly in keeping with a renal angiomyolipoma. 

Another two small lesions of the same appearances seen adjacent to the large mass.

Case Discussion

Typical renal fat-containing lesion discovered incidentally during an abdominal ultrasound examination.

When an AML has typical appearances there is essentially no differential.
