ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Renal Angiomyolipoma

History: 76 y.o. woman with right flank pain.

Findings: Contrast enhanced axial CT images reveal a large enhancing mass involving the upper pole of the right kidney. The mass has multiple foci of fat density. Catheter angiogram demonstrates a single right renal artery, with a defect in the upper pole corresponding to the angiomyolipoma. There is minimal blood supply to this lesion although it arises from a
 single upper pole branch. The artery supplying this mass was subselected with a microcatheter and 
then embolized to obtain arterial stasis using 300 to 500 micron
 bead block. Post-embolization image shows absent flow to the mass.

Ddx: • Angiomyolipoma • Renal Cell Carcinoma

Dxhow: Imaging findings are diagnostic.

No MeSH data available.
