Spontaneous retroperitoneal haemorrhage may occur due to variety of causes, but absence of trauma is stressed. In our study often cases, the commonest cause was angiomyolipona (6 cases). Clinical presentation varied, from mild flank pain to shock and oliguria. Ultrasound may be the initial test but CT scan remains the gold standard for diagnosis. Angiography is helpful to look. for vascular defects, and arteriovenous malformations in small renal cell carcinoma. Management varies from conservative approach to radical nephrectomy, depending on etiology.
