Renal angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign mesenchymal tumour. AML often leads to haemorrhagic complications such as retroperitoneal haematoma. Treatment varies from case to case, ranging from minimally invasive approaches such as selective embolization of the renal artery to invasive wedge resection, partial nephrectomy or, in more severe cases, radical nephrectomy. Here we report a case of retroperitoneal haematoma secondary to AML, treated with conservative approach by super-selective embolization of the lower-pole segmental renal artery.
