Case Study
This article presents a case associated with an unusual complication of tuberous sclerosis complex. The case has been presented as a quiz for medical practitioners. A 39 year old man with a known history of tuberous sclerosis complex presented with haematuria due to hemorrhagic changes of a large renal angiomyolipoma. Selective transcatheter arterial emobilization of the lesion was performed. Haematuria resolved but the patient experienced postembolization syndrome with fever, and presented with bowel obstructive symptoms. Abdominal radiographs showed marked dilatation of the colon. Colonoscopy showed dilatation of the colon without mechanical obstruction and multiple sessile polyps localized in the rectum.
