Summary of "Renal Angiomyolipoma Extending into the Renal Vein --A Case Report-."

We report a case of left renal angiomyolipoma extending into the renal vein. A 67-year-old woman showed a left renal tumor which was 6 cm in diameter and had density equal to fat tissue in computed tomography. We suspected liposarcoma and performed radical nephrectomy and resection of thrombus. The pathological diagnosis was angiomyolipoma with no malignancy. To our knowledge, renal angiomyolipoma with tumor thrombus has been reported in 62 cases, and pulmonary embolism developed in 9 of these cases. We conclude that surgical treatment is effective in treating angiomyolipoma with tumor thrombus.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions


The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).

Anastomosis of splenic vein to renal vein to relieve portal hypertension.

Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
