Epithelioid angiomyolipoma: imaging appearances.


Epithelioid angiomyolipoma is a recently described rare variant of renal angiomyolipoma. It can occur in patients with or without tuberous sclerosis, and may potentially be malignant. We report the imaging findings from two cases of epithelioid angiomyolipoma: the first in a patient with tuberous sclerosis complex, arising in a horse-shoe kidney and growing into the inferior vena cava and right atrium; the second in a 62-year-old hypertensive man.
