Synopsis: 
An analysis of angiomyolipoma of the kidney at the University Hospital of the West Indies over a 27-year period confirmed its uncommon occurrence and overwhelming female preponderance.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Angiomyolipoma (AML) of the kidney is an uncommon tumour that, until recently, was often misdiagnosed preoperatively as renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Newer radiological techniques have allowed more accurate preoperative diagnosis which can facilitate preoperative counselling and planning for conservative therapy. This study reviews the experience with these uncommon tumours at the University Hospital of the West Indies.
