Giant angiomyolipoma (AML) is uncommon benign renal neoplasm that occurs sporadic or in association with tuberous sclerosis syndrome. There is no specific cutoff tumor size and/or weight to define giant AMLs. Ovarian stimulation hormones might cause a marked increase in its size and subsequent bleeding risk. Incidental findings are not common in those patients as mass-associated symptoms always present. Computed tomography scan is the standard diagnostic imaging study except for tumors with poor fat content. According to the clinical presentation, site and side of renal involvement giant sporadic AMLs have different treatment options, for example, active surveillance, selective renal artery embolization, nephron-sparing surgery, and/or radical nephrectomy. In the present case report, we present a 22-year-old female with huge right renal mass (29 cm × 23 cm × 21 cm) and treated with right radical nephrectomy which proved to be renal AML on pathology examination.
