Angiomyolipomas are the most common benign mesenchymal tumors of the kidney. Although they are often seen sporadically, they can also be observed as a part of the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). They occur at an earlier age in cases associated with tuberous sclerosis (TS), bilateral mass and epithelioid formation. There are various treatment approaches such as active surveillance, nephron-sparing surgery, nephrectomy, angioembolization, and use of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTor) inhibitors. Our case was a patient with bilateral multiple renal angiomyolipomas associated with TS. We applied mTOR inhibitor and angioembolization therapy to this patient. In our article, we tried to evaluate our success rate in our treatment and the treatment regimens to be applied in these patients.
