The article provides information on multiple fatty vascular lesions of angiomyolipomas. These elements most likely matched the hypodense lesions observed in both the kidney and liver on computed tomography. Angiomyolipomas are benign tumors of mesenchymal source comprising vascular, adipose, and muscle elements. They may occur as part of the autosomal dominant inherited disorder syndrome of tuberous sclerosis.

    Renal angiomyolipomas are uncommon tumours during pregnancy, but it's important to consider them in the differential diagnosis, for the increased risk of complications such as bleeding, specially during pregnancy. Their characteristics are different depending on if the tumour is associated or...
