What is Kidney Angiomyolipoma?

Description of the disease

Kidney angiomyolipoma is a benign tumor consisting of fatty and vascular tissue. It develops in the kidney and can grow to a significant size, causing various symptoms and complications.


  • Classical angiomyolipoma
  • Pseudoangiomyolipoma


Symptoms of kidney angiomyolipoma may include back pain, blood in the urine, arterial hypertension, and other manifestations.


The causes of kidney angiomyolipoma are not fully understood, but genetic factors, metabolic disorders, and hormonal changes are believed to play a role in the development of the tumor.


Ultrasound, CT, MRI, and biopsy may be used for the diagnosis of kidney angiomyolipoma.


Treatment of kidney angiomyolipoma may involve observation, surgical removal of the tumor, or embolization of blood vessels, depending on the size of the tumor, symptoms, and risk of complications.


Since the exact causes of kidney angiomyolipoma are unknown, specific preventive measures are lacking. However, a healthy lifestyle, regular medical check-ups, and timely examination may contribute to the early detection of the tumor.


Diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of kidney angiomyolipoma are carried out by a urologist or oncologist.
