Abstract

Renal angiomyolipoma is an uncommon, benign neoplasm. Although it is seen in association with tuberous sclerosis, the majority (80%) occur in isolation. Isolated tumours predominantly occur in middle aged females, and mostly arise from the right kidney. Larger tumours are known to be associated with a significant risk of rupture (traumatic or spontaneous) resulting in haemorrhagic complications. We report a case of a giant, uncomplicated, isolated angiomyolipoma arising from the left kidney in an elderly female.
