[The ultrasonic diagnosis and treatment of benign kidney tumors].

Abstract

Literature data and first-hand experience with 31 patients having benign renal tumors support high diagnostic efficacy of ultrasound scanning (USS) in this disease. USS reveals angiomyolipomas the typical picture of which permits ultrasound monitoring thereof. However, USS appearance of renal adenoma is similar to that of renal cancer. In view of frequent malignant transformation of renal adenoma, nephrectomy is thought valid in renal adenoma patients.
