ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Renal Angiomyolipoma

History: 59 yo woman referred for renal ultrasound.

Findings: Gray-scale sonographic images of the right kidney demonstrate a well circumscribed 1 cm hyperechoic lesion in the lower pole that is isoechoic with the renal sinus. Unenhanced CT of the kidneys was obtained demonstrating a tiny focal area of fat density in the lower pole of the right kidney, confirming the diagnosis of renal angiomyolipoma.

Ddx: Differential diagnosis for a hyperechoic, apparently solid renal lesion on ultasound: Renal Angiomyolipoma Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) Other renal neoplasms (eg, oncocytoma) Complex renal cysts Renal hematoma or abscess

Dxhow: Confirmatory unenhanced CT of the kidneys was obtained demonstrating a tiny focal area of fat density in the lower pole of the right kidney, correlating with the sonographic findings of a AML.

Exam: Noncontributory

No MeSH data available.
