Abstract

Angiomyolipoma is a tumour composed of varying admixtures of bloodvessels, smooth muscles and adipose tissue.Renal angiomyolipoma can be unilateral or bilateral. Bilateral angiomyolipoma has a very strong association with tuberous sclerosis. In non tuberous sclerosis patient, bilateral renal angiomyolipoma is relatively rare. We have described a 49 year old non tuberous sclerosis female presented with bilateral renal angiomyolipoma. Renal angiomyolipoma commonly behaved in a benign way and resection is curative in most of the cases.
