Angiomyolipoma (AML) is the most common benign renal tumor and intratumoral pseudoaneurysms are not uncommon in this condition .The risk of hemorrhage correlates with the size of tumor and persistence of pseudoaneurysms. We report a case of hemorrhagic angiomyolipoma associated with intratumoral pseudoaneurysm which was embolized successfully.
