ABSTRACT
Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a rare benign tumor composed of adipose tissue, smooth muscles and blood vessels with an incidence is 0.3-3% which is predominantly found in females. These tumors have a strong association with tuberous sclerosis but can occur sporadically. Clinical importance lies in their susceptibility to spontaneous haemorrhage. They can be unilateral or bilateral. Interestingly these tumors occur more in right kidney. We present a case of sporadic unilateral angiomyolipoma of left kidney in a 55 yrs old female who had complaints of off and on left lumbar pain. She was subjected to left nephrectomy and diagnosis was confirmed on histopathology.
KEY WORDS
