Abstract:   (155 Views)
Background: Angiomyolipoma is a benign renal tumor composed of fat tissue, smooth muscle, and vascular tissue. Angiomyolipoma tumors are usually asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. The tumor hemorrhage is the most common complication of angiomyolipoma. Moreover, Wunderlich syndrome is a rare spontaneous phenomenon associated with sub-capsular and perirenal hemorrhage with no history of trauma.
Case Report: This case report presents a spontaneous hemorrhage of a renal angiomyolipoma.
Conclusion: Angiomyolipoma can be presented with sub-capsular and perirenal hemorrhage with no history of trauma that can be life-threatening.
Keywords: renal Angiomyolipoma, hemorrhage, Wunderlich syndrome
