Dissection of a renal artery is rare and is usually associated with underlying arterial disease. Bilateral renal artery dissection following extreme exertion is exceptionally uncommon, and thus presents a diagnostic challenge. We report a case of a middle-aged, otherwise healthy man who presented to the hospital with left flank pain after a long bicycling trip. Initial laboratory tests and urinalysis were normal. Careful review of a contrast-enhanced computed tomography angiogram (CTA) with 3D reconstruction revealed bilateral segmental renal artery dissection and thrombosis with corresponding renal infarcts. He was treated medically and rapidly recovered.
