ANGIOMYOLIPOMA OF THE KIDNEY

Gul Muhammad, Aurang zeb, Shahid Sultan

Abstract


The angiomyolipoma is an unusual tumour, composed of mature adipose tissue, blood vessels
and smooth muscle with supporting stroma. It is generally regarded as benign-hamartoma. Such
tumour may grow to a large size.
There is a well-recognized association between angiomyolipoma and tuberous sclerosis. In
such cases tumours are invariably multiple and frequently bilateral. They may enlarge to produce
palpable renal masses. This may also be found in patients lacking the stigmata of tuberous sclerosis
complex. Inglis (1960) and Price and Mostofi (1965) gave an excellent resume of condition in 30
patients free from tuberous sclerosis. The commonest presenting symptoms are loin pain and renal
mass.
