A case of giant angiomyolipoma of the kidney discovered during the study of a light lumbar trauma is presented. Disseminated tuberous sclerosis lesions are demonstrated at the brain, cerebellum, liver and contralateral kidney. External cutaneous stigmas of this illness are shown at the face. The size of the viscera and the loss of function of the left kidney conditioned the nephrectomy. The piece weighed upon extracting 6300 g, without malignant signs. To the microscopic exam atrophic sclerosis for compression was demonstrated. The postoperative course was satisfactory. Actually his arterial tension is controlled by medical treatment.
