Wunderlich’s syndrome or spontaneous renal hematoma is rare condition but can be life threatening. Renal tumours are the most common etiology. CT plays a vital role in identifying the perirenal hematoma and diagnosing the underlying cause. Selective arterial embolization is the current treatment of choice in ruptured renal angiomyolipoma, especially in life threatening cases.
