Dermatol Sinica 13: 41-51, 1995

A 53-year-old female patient, was admitted on account of fever and abdominal pain for 2 days. Physical examination revealed mutiple pinkish to skin-colored, firm papules located on the nose, nasolabial fold and cheeks, and several skin-colored, conical papules around the nails of the fingers and toes were also found. Histopathology of a papule on the nose revealed a picture of angiofibroma. Laboratory data showed anemia, urinary-tract infection and chronic renal falure. Abdominal sonogram and CT scan showed multiple renal angiomyolipomas that almost occupied the bilateral kidney. She was diagnosed as tuberous sclerosis with renal angiomyolipoma and chronic renal failure. The association between renal angiomyolipoma and renal failure is extremely rare. We herein report such a case.
