A 31-year-old man was referred to our hospital for macroscopic hematuria. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed a 36×30 mm enhancing left renal tumor with tumor thrombus extending into the left renal vein. Therefore, we diagnosed the tumor as a clinically classified cT3aN0M0 left renal cell carcinoma. Retroperitoneal laparoscopic radical left nephrectomy with renal vein thrombectomy was performed, with removal of the left kidney with the mass and tumor thrombus en bloc. The pathological diagnosis was epithelioid angiomyolipoma (EAML) of the left kidney. EAML is a rare tumor with malignant potential. In this case, although no signs of recurrence or metastasis have been observed for 9 months post-operation, we recommended a careful follow-up regimen.
