Abstract

Renal angiomyolipomas have a high risk of rupture when they are large and associated with aneurysms. The most serious complication that may occur is life threatening intratumoral bleeding. Immediate interventional therapies to stop bleeding are required. Herein, we report on a 16-year-old female patient with a retroperitoneal hematoma due to a spontaneous renal angiomyolipoma rupture by computed tomography.
