Fifty-two year old female with large, right renal/possibly adrenal mass by imaging studies. Rule-out renal angiomyolipoma.
The specimen consisted of a 2383 gram, 22.0 x 20.0 x 7.5 cm bright yellow, and focally red, fatty tumor with extensive hemorrhage. The tumor was ruptured during surgery, and the exposed internal surface showed a thin, compressed rim of bright gold tissue, resembling adrenal cortex. Cross-sections showed extensive hemorrhage. There were no renal structures identified.
