Abstract

Our objective was to evaluate the differences between tumoral vascular pattern of renal cell carcinoma and fat-poor angiomyolipoma by contrast-enhanced computed tomography. All included patients had a definitive pathological diagnosis of either angiomyolipoma or renal cell carcinoma, and then the contrast-enhanced computed tomography images of these patients were evaluated. The patients who had visible prominent vessels in cross-sectional imaging were selected. The tumor vascular pattern (prominent (>2 mm) intratumoral and peritumoral vessels), density, and diameter of the vessels in renal cell carcinoma and fat-poor angiomyolipoma were evaluated. All cases (n = 12) with fat-poor angiomyolipoma were found to have intratumoral vessels and all cases (n = 36) with clear cell renal cell carcinoma were found to have peritumoral vessels. There was no significant correlation detected between the diameter of tumor and the density as well as diameter of the vessels. In conclusion, the evaluation of the vascular pattern using contrast enhancement contrast-enhanced computed tomography may provide important information that is useful in helping accurate differential diagnosis of fat-poor angiomyolipoma or renal cell carcinoma preoperatively.
