Abstract

We report a case of unilateral renal angiomyolipoma in a 10-year-old boy with tuberous sclerosis. The case is worthy of attention because the symptoms occurred at an early age and because the lesion was unilateral, the latter confirmed at 11-year follow-up. The presentation and treatment are discussed, and the pertinent literature is reviewed. The case demonstrates that it is of clinical importance to monitor renal involvement in children with tuberous sclerosis.
