Angiographic Characteristics of Renal Hamartoma

  • Herbert Brendler

Albrecht(1) in 1904 first coined the word “hamartoma” to designate a benign tumor in which there is abnormal mixing of the normal component tissues of the organ in which the tumor arises. Renal hamartomas are relatively uncommon and are frequently found in association with tuberous sclerosis. They can occur, however, as isolated entities. When associated with tuberous sclerosis, they are multiple and bilateral; if not associated with tuberous sclerosis, they occur as solitary lesions. These tumors contain variable amounts of fat, blood vessels, and muscles and are named accordingly: angiomyolipoma, myoangiolipoma, etc.
