  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Influence of pregnancy on renal angiomyolipoma].
  • The aim is to perform a literature search on the role of pregnancy in the rupture of renal angiomyolipoma.
  • Articles published from 1952 to 2004 in the Medline database were searched using the keywords renal angiomylipoma and pregnancy.
  • Seventy-two cases of association of renal angiomyolipoma and pregnancy were found, out of which 58 presented a haemorrhage.
  • In only 26% of the cases, renal angiomyolipoma had been documented prior to pregnancy.
  • A causal role of pregnancy in the atraumatic rupture of angiomyolipoma is not clearly defined.
  • Nevertheless, many arguments (whether it be abdominal mechanical pressure, hormonal or histological ones) suggest that a pregnancy could increase the risk of renal angiomyolipoma rupture.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Laparoscopic cryoablation of renal angiomyolipoma.
  • PURPOSE: Angiomyolipomas are rare benign renal tumors which occasionally require intervention.
  • Preservation of renal function is essential when treating renal angiomyolipoma in patients with multiple or bilateral lesions.
  • We report on the first series of patients with renal angiomyolipoma treated with laparoscopic cryoablation.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven patients with pathologically confirmed renal angiomyolipoma underwent laparoscopic cryoablation.
  • Six patients were female, and 2 patients had associated tuberous sclerosis and multiple bilateral angiomyolipoma.
  • Renal function was preserved, with mean preoperative and postoperative creatinine 0.83 (range 0.6 to 1.6) and 0.91 (range 0.7 to 1.8), respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic cryoablation is a safe and feasible minimally invasive, nephron sparing alternative for the treatment of angiomyolipoma.

  • [Title] Elective open nephron-sparing surgery for renal masses: Single-center experience with 223 consecutive patients.
  • : e16139 Background: To present our experience with elective, open, nephron-sparing surgery for renal masses in a contemporary, consecutive series.
  • The preoperative workup included laboratory analysis, renal ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography.
  • 52 patients presented renal masses > 4cm.
  • Renal cell carcinoma was present in 177 patients (76.6%), benign renal masses were diagnosed in in 54 pazienti (23.3%): angiomyolipoma (35%), oncocytoma (40%), complicated cyst (25%).
  • Worthy of note among these 54 patients, pre-operative diagnosis was present in 12 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of this contemporary, monocenter experience underline the role of open, elective, nephron-sparing surgery for patients with renal masses, confirming good results even for renal masses > 4cm.

  • [Title] Spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage due to massive rupture of renal angiomyolipoma treated with nephrectomy: an unusual onset of tuberous sclerosis complex.
  • Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic and systemic disorder characterized by benign hamartomatous tumors that involve multiple organ systems.
  • Renal angiomyolipomas are documented in approximately 40 - 80% of tuberous sclerosis patients and usually are small and asymptomatic.
  • In these cases diagnosis can be difficult but definitive only after the histological examination or the systemic investigation of other possible tissue involvements.
  • We describe the case of a 28 year old woman who came to the emergency department with acute postprandial abdominal pain and severe anemia due to hemorrhagic renal angiomyolipoma treated by nephrectomy in whom the following examination led to the diagnosis of TSC.

  • [Transliterated title] Angiomiolipoma epitelioide renal.
  • OBJECTIVE: To issue the existence of a variety of angiomyolipoma, named epithelioid, with different histological and clinic properties.
  • METHODS: We report the case of a 17 year old female, with Bourneville's disease, who was discovered to have a solid renal mass suggestive of carcinoma in a control CT scan, adjacent to other smaller masses identified as angiomyolipomas.
  • RESULTS: After several tumorectomies, the suspicious mass, 4 cm in size, was diagnosed as epithelioid angiomyolipoma, with immunohistochemical confirmation of capacity for HMB45, and negative vimentin and keratin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the possibility of coexistence of adenocarcinoma and angiomyolipoma, the existence of an epithelioid variety cannot be discarded, mainly in patients with phakomatosis.
  • The indications for surgery are the same than for the rest of renal masses.
  • Nevertheless, follow-up criteria must be stricter due to the possibility of torpid outcome in terms of dissemination of this infrequent variety of angiomyolipoma.

  • [Title] Embolization of renal angiomyolipoma in pregnancy: case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Renal angiomyolipoma is a rare benign tumour composed of adipose tissue, blood vessels and smooth muscles.
  • CASE: At 20th week of pregnancy a previously healthy 26-year old pregnant woman with an episode of sudden and severe pain in the left flank followed by fainting was diagnosed with a bleeding tumour of the left kidney.
  • The diagnosis was based on ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • CONCLUSION: Embolization of renal angiomyolipoma bleeding vessels during pregnancy can be an effective therapeutic approach protecting against further bleeding and haemorrhagic shock thereby obviating the need to perform urgent surgery and allowing the woman to carry her pregnancy to term safely in outpatient setting.

  • OBJECTIVES: To explain the high incidence of misdiagnosis of angiomyolipoma (AML) prior to surgery.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1989 and 2007, 2,657 patients were operated for a renal tumor at Dupuytren hospital in Limoges and at Cochin hospital in Paris.
  • The group of patients in which the diagnosis was done preoperatively was compared to the one in which the diagnosis was missed.
  • The diagnosis of AML was ignored preoperatively in 62 patients (73%).
  • The diagnosis seems particularly difficult when the tumor is small or contains a small proportion of fat.
  • In addition, this study highlights that the diagnosis of AML is frequently ignored in men.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Polycythemia vera as a presentation of renal angiomyolipoma: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Angiomyolipoma is a common benign renal tumor composed of thick-walled blood vessels, smooth muscle, and adipose tissue.
  • It may be found incidentally during workup for suspected renal disease.
  • Although angiomyolipoma may present as a palpable, tender renal mass with flank pain and gross or microscopic hematuria, many patients are asymptomatic.
  • This report describes a rare case of a woman diagnosed with renal angiomyolipoma and polycythemia vera.
  • The report discusses the differential diagnosis using erythropoietin, erythropoietin-receptor and Janus kinase 2.
  • An upper left renal pole angiomyolipoma was successfully ablated after multiple phlebotomy treatments.
  • CONCLUSION: Concurrent occurence of angiomyolipoma and polycythemia vera is rare.
  • Surgical intervention for this renal tumor should be avoided unless malignancy or renal cell carcinoma is suspected or to prevent spontaneous rupture of larger tumors.

  • OBJECTIVE: Renal angiomyolipoma is an uncommon benign tumour composed of smooth muscle cells, blood vessels and adipose tissue.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis of four cases of angiomyolipoma diagnosed on fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) during the period 1998-2004 was carried out.
  • CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of angiomyolipoma can be made by FNAC under image guidance and a cell block may be quite helpful in making a correct diagnosis.
  • It is important to establish a correct preoperative diagnosis as treatment of these tumours is conservative and this obviates the need for total nephrectomy.

  • [Title] Rapture of renal angiomyolipoma during pregnancy: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Rapture of a renal angiomyolipoma and massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage, during pregnancy is rare and occasionally fatal.
  • The ultrasound and MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) scan showed a 7 x 7 x 5 cm mass suggestive of angiomyolipoma in the right kidney, with evidence of retroperitoneal bleeding right perirenal and intrarenal haematoma.
  • The histological study of the resected mass revealed the presence of angiomyolipoma.
  • Angiomyolipoma with spontaneous bleeding during pregnancy is a dangerous condition that may cause mortality in the mother and fetus, but elective, simultaneous cesarean section and radical nephrectomy can be performed.

  • OBJECTIVE: We report one case of renal angiomyolipoma with three characteristics: renal sinus origin, inferior vena cava tumor thrombus reaching the right atrium and Budd-Chiari syndrome.
  • RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign mesenchymal tumor.
  • It is an uncommon tumor (2-6.4% of all kidney tumors), with a female predominance.
  • Angiomyolipoma most often originate from the renal parenchyma but they can rarely originate from the renal sinus.
  • They can involve the renal vein, the inferior vena cava and even the right atrium as a tumor thrombus.
  • Angiomyolipoma commonly present as an incidental finding on radiographic studies, but the clinical presentation varies from flank pain to fatal pulmonary tumor embolism.

  • This case describes a 47-year-old female with tuberous sclerosis associated with bilateral giant renal angiomyolipomas.
  • She underwent an initial renal angioembolization in August 2006.
  • After four months, she required emergency nephrectomy due to spontaneous hemorrhage from the angiomyolipoma (Wunderlich's syndrome).
  • Life threatening Wunderlich's syndrome requires emergency nephrectomy, however, renal preservation can be achieved by elective nephron sparing surgery.

  • [Title] Hormone receptor expression in renal angiomyolipoma: clinicopathologic correlation.
  • OBJECTIVES: Although renal angiomyolipoma (AML) occurs more commonly in females than males, the origin of this difference in incidence by sex is unknown.
  • Therefore, we investigated the expression of the androgen receptor (AR), estrogen receptor subtypes alpha (ERalpha) and beta (ERbeta), progesterone receptor, and the enzyme aromatase in renal AML.
  • METHODS: We evaluated specimens from 110 patients who had undergone resection of a renal AML, including 90 women and 20 men.
  • The level of ERbeta expression was not associated with patient age (P = 0.92), sex (P = 0.82), a diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis (P = 0.56), or histologic subtype of AML (P = 0.94).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of our study have shown that ERbeta expression is ubiquitous in renal AML, and the AR is found in most tumors.
  • These data suggest a potential role for hormones in the pathogenesis and management of renal AML.

  • [Title] T-cell co-regulatory molecule expression in renal angiomyolipoma and pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the expression of B7-H3 and B7-H1 in renal angiomyolipoma (AML) tumors and the related, devastating syndrome of pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM).
  • We recently reported the high expression of T-cell co-regulatory B7-H ligands in renal cell carcinoma tumor vasculature and tumor cells.
  • AML is a highly vascular tumor that most frequently emanates from the kidney.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemical methods were used to assess the tumor expression of B7-H1 and B7-H3 in paraffin-embedded tissues from 110 patients who had undergone partial or radical nephrectomy for renal AML and from 7 patients with LAM who had undergone lung biopsy.
  • B7-H3 staining was noted in a median of 90% (range 20%-100%) of cells from renal AMLs and was independent of patient age (P = .43), sex (P = .27), tumor size (P = .21), and symptomatic presentation (P = .35).
  • CONCLUSIONS: B7-H3 was expressed at high levels in renal AMLs and pulmonary LAM, and B7-H1 was infrequently expressed in these tumors.

  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the changing management of sporadic renal angiomyolipoma and renal angiomyolipoma associated with the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) during the past 16 years.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 60 patients with angiomyolipoma seen at our institutions.
  • The lesions grew an average of 4.7 +/- 3.4 cm for TSC tumors and 0.6 +/- 0.2 cm for sporadic angiomyolipoma tumors.
  • None of the patients developed renal impairment.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Renal angiomyolipoma has a slow growth rate.
  • The preservation of renal function was noted in all our patients.

  • [Title] [Anti-angiogenic therapy of a renal angiomyolipoma in a seriously disabled patient suffering from multiple sclerosis].
  • INTRODUCTION: Angiomyolipoma, although rare, belong together with oncocytomas to the most common benign renal neoplasms.
  • Although angiomyolipoma is usually a non-invasive tumor that does not metastasize, chirurgical intervention, especially in case of large or enlarging tumors, is recommended due to their capacity to cause haemorrhage and other significant clinical complications.
  • CASE REPORT: We report the case of a renal angiomyolipoma in a female patient seriously disabled by multiple sclerosis with reduced physical and nutritional condition.
  • The woman already underwent a nephrectomy 20 years ago due to an angiomyolipoma of the opposite kidney.
  • By a four-weekly course of EGFR-inhibitor gefitinib (Iressa), we achieved a control of the angiomyolipoma and were able to prevent nephrectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The use of EGFR inhibitors, whose anti-proliferative activity in renal cell tumors derives not only from direct inhibition of cell proliferation, but also from the inhibition of angiogenesis, requires further investigation.

  • Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign clonal neoplasm that consists of varying amounts of mature adipose tissue, smooth muscle, and thick-walled vessels.
  • Approximately 20% of AMLs are found in patients with tuberous sclerosis syndrome (TS), an autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by mental retardation, epilepsy, and adenoma sebaceous, a distinctive skin lesion.
  • The presence of even a small amount of fat within a renal lesion on CT scan (confirmed by Hounsfield unit's < or = 10) is considered diagnostic of AML.
  • We present the case of a fifty-nine-year old patient with an angiomyolipoma and massive retroperitoneal hemorrhage with Lenk syndrome.

  • A 40 year-old 2nd gesta pregnant woman (34.5 weeks of amenorhea) was admitted to hospital for abdominal pain and arterial hypotension which were rapidly related to a retroperitoneal haematoma due to left kidney bleeding.
  • Exploration of the retroperitonal space after foetal extraction confirmed the presence of a large haematoma and abnormal left renal morphology.
  • Subsequently, abdominal and thoracic computerised tomographic examination showed bilateral dysplasia of the kidneys and pulmonary cysts consistent with the diagnosis of renal angiomyolipoma and pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis.
  • The case report is of interest because of the circumstances of discovery of the disease and because nephrectomy was not necessary to control the bleeding of the left kidney.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Renal angiomyolipoma with malignant transformation, simultaneous occurrence with malignity and other complex clinical situations.
  • Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign kidney tumor, which is characterized by the presence of mature or immature fat tissue, thick-walled blood vessels, and smooth muscles.
  • And also angiomyolipoma could be associated with renal adenocarcinoma in the same kidney.
  • The aim of this study is to show the association of angiomyolipoma with complex clinical situations such as malign transformation, simultaneous occurrence with adenocarcinoma, bilateral tumors with tuberous sclerosis or Wunderlich Syndrome.
  • Findings of clinical presentation, pathological evaluation, urography, ultrasonography, and computerized tomography of 19 patients who were diagnosed angiomyolipoma in our clinic during 1994-2003 were examined retrospectively.
  • Our records indicated that radical nephrectomy was performed in three cases of angiomyolipoma in which the differential diagnosis from adenocarcinoma could not be made and in another case of angiomyolipoma, which was associated with adenocarcinoma.
  • Simple nephrectomy was performed in four symptomatic angiomyolipoma cases with tumor size larger than 4 cm and partial nephrectomy in another case.
  • In one case, renal angiomyolipoma was associated with adenocarcinoma in the same kidney.
  • In one case, post-operative recurrence of angiomyolipoma developed 7 months after nephrectomy.
  • Angiomyolipoma is regarded as a benign tumor of the kidney; however, it may also show aggressive behaviors and rarely transform to sarcoma.
  • It may also exist in the same kidney along with adenocarcinoma or sarcoma.

  • Renal angiomyolipomata usually present as incidental findings on routine imaging, but rarely they may give rise to significant haemorrhage.
  • Prophylactic embolisation may be considered in some cases, depending on lesion size and patient co-morbidities.We present a case of retroperitoneal bleeding from a renal angiomyolipoma in a patient with known cirrhosis of the liver, which caused acute deterioration of liver function and consequent hepatic encephalopathy.
  • Such functional hepatic decompensation has not previously been reported in this context and we suggest the use of prophylactic embolisation for incidental renal angiomyolipomata, regardless of size, in all patients with chronic liver disease to prevent this potentially life-threatening complication.

  • Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign tumour histologically characterized by a mixture of adipose tissue, smooth muscle cells and thick walled blood vessels.
  • Long-believed to be a benign hamartoma, angiomyolipoma is now considered to arise from perivascular epithelioid cells.
  • Epithelioid angiomyolipoma is a rare type of angiomyolipoma, composed partially or completely of epithelioid cells, with a potentially aggressive behaviour.
  • Histologically it can mimic renal cell carcinoma.
  • Positivity for HMB45, Melan A, CD68 and CD117 are useful for diagnosis.
  • Herein, we report the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of a renal tumour composed of large epithelioid mononucleated or multinucleated cells with abundant acidophilic cytoplasm and prominent nucleoli.
  • Despite the morphologic resemblance of this tumour to renal cell carcinoma, its phenotype (HMB45, Melan A and CD68 positivity and keratin negativity) parallels the phenotypic profile of angiomyolipoma.
  • Therefore, immunohistochemistry should be considered when diagnosing this variant of angiomyolipoma.

  • [Title] Clinical correlates of renal angiomyolipoma subtypes in 209 patients: classic, fat poor, tuberous sclerosis associated and epithelioid.
  • Histologically confirmed angiomyolipomas uniformly follow a benign course but rare epithelioid variants of angiomyolipoma can recur and metastasize.
  • We investigated the clinical, radiographic and histological characteristics of each angiomyolipoma subtype.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pertinent data were recorded for 209 patients surgically treated for angiomyolipoma in 219 kidneys from 1981 to 2007.
  • RESULTS: Median radiographic size was 3.2, 4.9 and 10 cm in patients with a single angiomyolipoma (59% of patients), multiple angiomyolipomas and tuberous sclerosis (probable or definite), respectively.
  • In these 3 groups 65%, 47% and 33% of lesions were not suspected radiographically (fat poor angiomyolipoma).
  • Despite potentially aggressive findings in 18% (eg presence within the perinephric fat, lymph node involvement) no angiomyolipoma recurred during a mean followup of 3.4 years (range 0 to 24).
  • A total of 28 (13%) patients with angiomyolipoma had concomitant renal cell carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A surprisingly high number of resected angiomyolipomas was not suspected radiographically indicating the importance of precise radiographic characterization to minimize nephrectomy for fat poor angiomyolipoma, which should remain a research priority.
  • In this sizeable single institution series no triphasic, monophasic or epithelioid angiomyolipoma recurred despite potentially aggressive findings in a substantial proportion of cases.

  • Epithelioid angiomyolipoma (eAMLoma) is an uncommon renal mesenchymal tumor with malignant potential and is frequently associated with tuberous sclerosis (TSC).
  • Differential diagnosis from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is often challenging because of its epithelioid morphology.
  • The male TSC patient had microscopic conventional AMLomas in the same kidney.
  • The possibility of eAMLoma should be evaluated as a diagnostic candidate, especially in cases of renal tumors (i) in young patients;.

  • [Title] Bilateral renal angiomyolipoma coexistent with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis and tuberous sclerosis.
  • A case of bilateral renal angiomyolipoma coexistent with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis and tuberous sclerosis was described, being in shock with massive hematuria.
  • The left giant angiomyolipoma, filling the almost entire abdomen, was complicated with two large hump and moniliform aneurysms.
  • This life-threatening hemorrhage was successfully treated by transcatheter arterial embolization; packing mechanically detachable coils into the aneurysms and embolization of trunk of the left renal artery.
  • Although coexisting renal and pulmonary involvement in tuberous sclerosis is rare, it is important to recognize lymphangioleiomyomatosis as a pulmonary involvement of angiomyolipoma with tuberous sclerosis.

  • INTRODUCTION: Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign tumour, but its spontaneous rupture may become threatening for patient's live.
  • OBJECTIVES: Analyze renal angyolipoma treated in our center, their clinical outcome and treatment purposed in each case.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyse 20 cases of patients with renal angiomyolipoma treated in our centre from March 1996 to March 2006.
  • Diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis was the only factor attached to spontaneous rupture of those lesions.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Renal angiomyolipoma may behave in an aggressive way in patients with tuberous sclerosis.
  • Both surgery and arterial embolization have proved not to compromise renal function in treated patients.

  • [Title] [Nephron sparing surgery as a treatment modality for renal angiomyolipoma].
  • OBJECTIVE: There is no consensus concerning the indications for active treatment (selective angioembolization (SAE) or surgery) versus observation alone, and the treatment modality for patients with renal angiomyolipoma (AML).
  • Our study aimed to analyze the results of long-term follow-up of patients with renal AML treated by nephron-sparing surgery (NSS).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of thirteen patients with renal AML were retrospectively reviewed for clinical and histopathologic features.
  • Overall, eight patients were symptomatic at diagnosis.
  • The mean follow-up period was 26 months (range: 6-62 months) and during that time there was no evidence of recurrence or decreased renal function.
  • Only one patient developed AML in the contralateral kidney, there was one case of incisional hernia and another patient continued to suffer from flank pain.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of the present study suggest that NSS is a safe and effective treatment modality for renal AML.

  • BACKGROUND: Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign mezenchymal tumour with prevalence of 0.3-3% of all surgically resected renal tumours.
  • Tumour has typical pathological image in computer tomography notation that enables the diagnosis.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: 612 patients with renal tumour were operated at the Department of Urology faculty hospital in Pilsen.
  • Angiomyolipoma occurred in 7 patients.
  • The angiomyolipoma was accidentally found in 2 cases of nephrectomy, which was indicated for other diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We define diagnosis by means of CT notation in the most of patients.
  • This notation is not typical by any version of angiomyolipoma and we choose therefore surgical revision.

  • [Title] Preoperative diagnosis of renal angiomyolipoma with fine needle aspiration cytology: a report of 3 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Angiomyolipoma is a rare benign neoplasm, commonly involving the kidney.
  • Preoperative diagnosis on fine needle aspiration cytology can confirm the diagnosis, reducing the chances of unnecessary surgery.
  • CASES: We studied cases of renal angiomyolipoma (AML) presenting within 1 year with palpable renal masses confirmed on ultrasound to be of renal origin.
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears showed a few cohesive syncytial fragments with adipocytes, spindle cells and isolated single cells with foamy cytoplasm; a diagnosis of AML was made.
  • The diagnosis was confirmed on histopathology, which showed mature adipose tissue, tortuous and thick-walled blood vessels lacking elastic tissue lamina and bundles of smooth muscles that seemed to emanate from the blood vessels.
  • CONCLUSION: A preoperative diagnosis of renal AML is of great importance for correct management.
  • Preoperative FNAC along with computed tomographic findings and immunocytochemical analysis of FNAC smears with HNB-45 can confirm the diagnosis of AML, thus preventing unindicated nephrectomy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The role of partial nephrectomy for the management of sporadic renal angiomyolipoma.
  • OBJECTIVES: Angiomyolipoma is a benign renal tumor that has a propensity to grow over time and may cause local complications.
  • Given the benign nature of these lesions, renal-preserving treatments are favored.
  • We evaluated our experience with nephron-sparing surgery for renal angiomyolipoma.
  • METHODS: We reviewed our institutional nephrectomy registry to identify patients treated with nephron-sparing surgery for renal angiomyolipoma between 1970 and 2004.
  • Patients with a diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis were excluded.
  • RESULTS: We identified 58 patients treated with nephron-sparing surgery for sporadic renal angiomyolipoma, including 44 women and 14 men.
  • No patient developed de novo chronic renal insufficiency after nephron-sparing surgery, including 4 patients treated for angiomyolipomas in a solitary kidney.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nephron-sparing surgery for sporadic renal angiomyolipomas offers preservation of renal function and is associated with acceptable complication and low local recurrence rates.

  • [Title] Tumor-to-tumor metastasis: report of 2 cases of metastatic carcinoma to angiomyolipoma of the kidney.
  • Renal cell carcinoma is the most common recipient of tumor-to-tumor metastasis in malignant tumors.
  • However, renal angiomyolipoma has not been reported to be a recipient.
  • Here we report 2 cases of tumor-to-tumor metastasis to renal angiomyolipoma.
  • The donor tumors showed morphologic features that did not easily fit into renal angiomyolipoma, and they also demonstrated patterns of immunoreactivity consistent with the primary tumors rather than with renal angiomyolipoma.
  • To our knowledge, these are the first reported cases of tumor-to-tumor metastasis to renal angiomyolipoma.
  • An awareness of this phenomenon is important to avoid an incorrect diagnosis when encountering unusual morphologic features in renal angiomyolipoma.

  • [Title] Simple enucleation for the treatment of renal angiomyolipoma.
  • OBJECTIVES: To report on the role of simple enucleation for treating renal angiomyolipoma (AML) in a series of patients treated in our department.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the data of all 37 patients with a histopathological diagnosis of renal AML who had either radical nephrectomy (three) or nephron-sparing surgery by simple enucleation (34) between January 1986 and December 2005.
  • Indications for intervention included either symptomatic AML or a tumour of >4 cm, regardless to the presence of symptoms or renal masses suspicious of malignancy.
  • Two patients (6%) required renal hypothermia.
  • There were no major complications, e.g. prolonged acute tubular necrosis/chronic renal insufficiency and urinary leakage/urinoma, but two patients had urosepsis not associated with perirenal fluid collection and that required targeted antibiotic therapy.
  • Two patients had a small AML elsewhere in the operated kidney, detected 18 and 36 months after surgery, with a kidney recurrence rate of 6%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data confirm the optimum results of simple enucleation for renal AMLs; this technique provides excellent long-term local control and no patient had urinary leakage/fistula afterward.

  • Angiomyolipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors mostly arising from the kidney.
  • Angiomyolipoma of the colon is extremely rare.
  • A histopathological examination showed that the tumor of 5.7 cm in diameter included smooth muscle (spindle cell type), mature adipose tissue, and vessels, and therefore a diagnosis of angiomyolipoma was made.
  • A submucosal type of angiomyolipoma of the colon is extremely rare.
  • If a renal angiomyolipoma is larger than 4 cm, there is a risk of rupture.
  • When colonoscopy shows a submucosal tumor of the colon with hemorrhage, angiomyolipoma should be considered.
  • If an angiomyolipoma of the colon is large, surgical resection should be considered as a treatment option due to the risk of hemorrhage.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Unilateral simultaneous renal oncocytoma and angiomyolipoma: case report.
  • A rare case of synchronous angiomyolipoma and oncocytoma in the same kidney of a 70 year old man is presented.
  • A left renal mass was found incidentally by ultrasound.
  • Computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 1,3 cm mass in the mid-portion of the left kidney, whereas on the lower pole of the same kidney, a 3,3 cm mass was also revealed, consistent with angiomyolipoma.
  • A working diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma was made.
  • Microscopically, the tumor of the lower pole was found to be an angiomyolipoma, whereas the mid-portion tumor was an oncocytoma.
  • Until now, only 16 cases of unilateral simultaneous presence of renal angiomyolipoma and oncocytoma have been reported.
  • It is well worth remarking, that renal oncocytoma overlap with other renal neoplasms, therefore nephrectomy remains the treatment of choice.Renal angiomyolipoma and oncocytoma are uncommon neoplasms and their simultaneous presence in the same kidney is rare.

  • [Title] [Giant renal angiomyolipoma in a case with pulmonary lymphangiomyomatosis].
  • A 27-year-old female with pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis was referred to us because of the right large renal angiomyolipoma (AML), 10 cm in diameter, which was found by abdominal CT during close investigation of her pulmonary disease.
  • The renal tumor arose from the lower part of the kidney with somewhat exophytic growth.
  • She is now followed at outpatient clinic without recurrence of renal AML.
  • Pulmonary LAM often associates with renal AML.
  • Although pulmonary LAM is a progressive disease and has a poor prognosis, because of the risk of the rupture of renal AML, large renal AMLs should be treated.

  • [Title] Renal epithelioid angiomyolipoma: a case report and literature review.
  • BACKGROUND: Renal epithelioid angiomyolipoma is a recently recognized variant of angiomyolipoma, closely simulating renal cell carcinoma both clinically and histologically.
  • Only a relatively small number of cases of epithelioid angiomyolipoma of the kidney have been reported.
  • OBSERVATION: We report herein a new case of renal epithelioid angiomyolipoma in a 38-year-old male with no stigmata of tuberous sclerosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Epithelioid angiomyolipoma may be locally aggressive and can metastasise; therefore, long-term post-operative follow-up is mandatory.

  • [Title] Expression of the neural stem cell markers NG2 and L1 in human angiomyolipoma: are angiomyolipomas neoplasms of stem cells?
  • Angiomyolipomas are benign tumors of the kidney which express phenotypes of smooth muscle, fat, and melanocytes.
  • These tumors appear with increased frequency in the autosomal dominant disorder tuberous sclerosis and are the leading cause of morbidity in adults with tuberous sclerosis.
  • While benign, these tumors are capable of provoking life threatening hemorrhage and replacement of the kidney parenchyma, resulting in renal failure.
  • In order to determine whether angiomyolipomas, which exhibit smooth muscle and melanocytic phenotypes, express NG2 and L1, we performed immunocytochemistry on a cell line derived from a human angiomyolipoma, and found that these cells are uniformly positive.
  • Immunohistochemistry of human angiomyolipoma specimens revealed uniform staining of tumor cells, while renal cell carcinomas revealed positivity only of angiogenic vessels.
  • These results support a novel histogenesis of angiomyolipoma as a defect in differentiation of stem cell precursors.

  • [Title] Renal angiomyolipoma: long-term results following selective arterial embolization.
  • BACKGROUND: The treatment for and long-term outcome of renal angiomyolipoma (AML) at high-risk for bleeding has not been determined.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the complication rates and the long-term outcomes among patients treated by selective arterial embolization (SAE) for a large or symptomatic renal AML.
  • DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Forty-one patients with 48 kidneys containing AML were treated by SAE at a single tertiary academic center.
  • Avoidance of surgery was achieved in 96% of the kidneys.
  • No retroperitoneal hemorrhage was noted during follow-up, and 98% of the kidneys were preserved during the follow-up period.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SAE of renal AML has long-term efficacy in preventing hemorrhagic complications of renal AML, and preservation of the involved kidneys is amenable in both TS and sporadic cases.
