The tumor was completely removed.Patient:We present the case of a 55-yr-old patient with a 15 × 16-cm adrenal angiomyolipoma.Intervention:We performed adrenalectomy with adrenal gland neoplasms.Results:The histopathological features confirmed the diagnosis of adrenal angiomyolipoma. The patient made an uneventful recovery and was normal at the 6-month follow-up.Conclusions:Angiomyolipomas are rare mesenchymal tumors derived from perivascular epithelioid cells. These are commonly found in the kidney. Angiomyolipoma arising in the adrenal is a very rare entity. We present a case of adrenal angiomyolipoma.
