PMID:  7089815     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of severe hypertension due to fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal artery in a young adult woman is described. Several atypical features (both clinical and biochemical) are presented, and a guideline is suggested for investigations in younger adults with severe hypertension who are unresponsive to adequate drug therapy. Current concepts and features of fibromuscular dysplasia of arterial vessels are discussed.
