Two patients related to each other, are presented who have asymptomatic tuberous sclerosis. Utilizing radionuclide imaging techniques, multiple lesions of the kidney in one and a single lesion in the other were shown to be vascular rather than cystic in nature. Because of their known high association with tuberous sclerosis, renal angiomyolipoma was the primary consideration. This was proved with angiography. It is proposed that such nuclear medicine studies may offer diagnostic information in tuberous sclerosis with little hazard or inconvenience to the patient.
