Renal Angiomyolipoma

  • Benign tumor composed of fat, smooth muscle cells and thick-walled vessels; believe to originate from perivascular epithelioid cells (PEC) (aka, PEComa).
  • Related to other PEComas such as lymphangioleiomyomatosis, "sugar" tumor of lung, cardiac rhabdomyomas, etc.
  • May arise in association with tuberous sclerosis:
    • >50% of patients with TS develop AMLs; <50% of AML has TS.
    • Tend to be asymptomatic, bilateral, small, and multiple.
    • Associated with genetic alteration in TSC1 (chr 9q34) and TSC2 (chr 16p13.3).
  • Abundant fat containing tumor recognizable radiologically.
  • Gross:
  • Range from 1-20 cm (average 9 cm).
  • Golden-yellow appearance is common, but depends on the ratio (>fat looks like lipoma; > smooth muscle looks like leiomyoma) (image A).
  • Usually well-demarcated but not encapsulated.
  • May show local "invasion" or extension into perinephric or sinus fat.
  • Consists of varying amounts of smooth muscle cells, mature fat and thick-walled vessels 
    (image B) and (image C).
  • Vessels abnormal, often hyalinized and thick with eccentric lumen.
  • Smooth muscle cells appear to originate and "radiate" off the vessels (image D).
  • AML with benign epithelial cysts (AMLEC) is a rare variant.
  • Histology:
  • IHC: spindle cells reactive with melanoma marker (HMB-45+, Mart1+) and actin+ thereby distinguishing it from other spindle cell lesions of the kidney.
  • DDX: lipoma (for fat predominant AML), leiomyoma (for smooth muscle predominant AML).
  • Surgical intervention recommended for tumors >4 cm (retroperitoneal hemorrhage is common complication)

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally,
    if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be much more useful than ever before.

    I don't know if it's just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your blog.
    It appears as though some of the written text in your posts are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
    Thank you

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
    automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we
    could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me
    an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog
    by the way!
