The article presents a clinical case of surgical treatment of a patient with a rare oncological disease – multifocal angiomyolipoma of the liver and lungs. The patient had been hospitalized to the clinic, examined using spiral computed tomography of the abdominal organs and the chest. The following was revealed – bilateral multiple lung neoplasms, liver neoplasms: in Sg2 and Sg4 – 3 tumors up to 2 cm in diameter, in Sg1 – a large similar tumor 10x8cm adjacent to the inferior vena cava. Differential diagnostics with hepatocellular carcinoma was performed by using the determination of the blood tumor markers and trepan biopsy of the tumor of the caudate hepatic lobe, followed by histological examination. After confirming of probable benign nature of the tumor, the patient was operated on. Intraoperative findings were the following: in Sg2 and Sg4 of the liver – neoplasms up to 2 cm in diameter; in Sg1 of the liver – a neoplasm 9×8×10 cm, closely adjacent to the inferior vena cava, easily vulnerable with bleeding after contact. Resection of Sg1 of the liver with a tumor was performed by the left-sided method using afferent vascular exclusion of the liver, clamp crush technique, and electrosurgical welding. The postoperative period was stable, without complications, the patient was discharged from hospital on the 12th postoperative day. The immunohistochemical study of the removed tumor confirmed the diagnosis of liver angiomyolipoma.
