Angiomyolipomas (AMLs) are rare renal tumors, occur in majority of cases of tuberous sclerosis which are usually multiple, larger, bilateral, affecting younger age group and have tendency to bleed. Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare, idiopathic disease, exclusively affects women of childbearing age. This entity is rarely associated with tuberous sclerosis (TS). We present a case of young female with bilateral massive renal AMLs with bleeding on the right side, pulmonary LAM with typical features of TS. Associations between renal AMLs, pulmonary LAM and TS have been discussed.
