We performed a review of the epithelioid-type angiomas to determine their clinical course and propose an appropriate plan for follow-up. We present the case of a patient with possible adrenal carcinoma suggested by computed tomography for whom the histopathologic study revealed an epithelioid angiomyolipoma arising from the kidney. In the absence of consensus, we consider it worthwhile to register the very few cases diagnosed and record a detailed follow-up of the clinical course. We recommend surgical treatment and a follow-up regimen similar to that for renal carcinoma.
