Renal Angiomyolipomas (AML) are benign tumors, which can acquire huge size and when bilateral, they are diagnostic of tuberous sclerosis (TS). Pulmonary Lymphangiomyo­matosis (LAM) is more common in female patients with TS and mostly diagnosed in patients with renal AMLs. We report a case of giant bilateral AMLs and pulmonary LAM in a 48-year-old female patient, who required nephrectomy for life-threatening hemorrhage.
