Renal angiomyolipoma is a benign tumor of the kidney which is composed of fat, smooth muscle and thick walled vessels in varying proportions. It is the most common cause of spontaneous renal hemorrhage often present with classic triads of abdominal pain, palpable mass and hypovolemic shock called Wunderlich syndrome. Once the diagnosis of ruptured angiomyolipoma with unstable hemodynamic state is made, the treatment recommendation is either surgery or therapeutic embolization. The case we report is a 20 year old female presented with classic triads of abdominal pain, giant palpable mass and hypovolemic shock who was successfully managed conservatively.

Keywords: Renal angiomyolipoma, AMLs, CT scan, tumor of the kidney.
