Congenital afibrinogenemia is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the complete absence of functional fibrinogen. We report a 22-year-old female who developed nephrogenic arterial hypertension and intestinal ischemia due to congenital afibrinogenemia-associated angiopathy of large abdominal arteries. We describe, for the first time, the capsule findings and discuss the pathophysiology of this unusual condition.
