  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 21-year-old man with a personal history of tuberous sclerosis had been experiencing abdominal fullness for four years. Several imaging studies revealed bilateral multiple renal AMLs and one giant hemorrhagic cyst arising from an AML of the left kidney. He underwent selective arterial embolization twice at one year interval for repeated bleed-ing from AML. However, the third hemorrhage occurred and then we performed the third selective arterial emboliza-tion followed by partial nephrectomy. Approximately 6,000g of blood coagula and old blood were removed during the operation.
