Özet

Introduction: Wunderlich syndrome is an emergency medical condition that refers to spontaneous nontraumatic bleeding confined to the perinephric space. Renal angiomyolipomas are the most frequent etiology. Herein, we present a case of Wunderlich syndrome whose vital signs abruptly worsened and went into hypovolemic shock and required an urgent surgical approach.
