Renal angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign renal tumor with a risk of rupture in intratumoral aneurysms. Although renal AML in pregnancy is rare, risk of rupture is greater. Management for AML and childbirth is important during pregnancy; however, it is undefined yet. We present a case of hemorrhagic angiomyolipoma in pregnancy that is effectively managed by immediate cesarean section and elective transcatheter arterial embolization.
