Angiomyolipoma is a benign renal tumor. Its treatment depends on the size, symptoms and clinical condition of the patient. During its surgical excisión it is imperative to preserve the highest amount possible of normal kidney tissue. We report a 31 years oíd female consulting for pain in the lumbar área. A kidney ultrasound showed a solid tumor measuring 4 cm in the upper segment of the right kidney. A CAT sean confirmed the diagnosis of a renal angiolmyolipoma. In April 2006 she had a molar pregnaney and required chemotherapy. The imaging study showed that the size of the renal tumor increased from 4 to 9 cm. The patient was subjected to a partial laparoscopic nephrectomy. The pathology report of the surgical piece confirmed the diagnosis of angiomyolipoma.
