Abstract

Fatty tumors of the liver are relatively rare and may be seen in association with a number of conditions, both malignant and benign. Angiomyolipomas are lesions that typically have fatty elements and are a common finding in patients with tuberous sclerosis (TS). In the abdomen, angiomyolipomas typically occur in the kidney, but other organs may be involved as well. We describe two patients with tuberous sclerosis and hepatic angiomyolipomas.
