Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 30-year-old man had a sudden bout of severe abdominal pain. An enhanced computed tomographic scan revealed dissections of the celiac artery, superior mesenteric artery, left renal artery, and right external iliac artery; stenosis of the right renal artery; and left kidney infarction. After careful evaluation, the patient was diagnosed with fibromuscular dysplasia (medial dysplasia), based on the findings obtained from the enhanced computed tomographic scan. This case is extremely rare because fibromuscular dysplasia occurred concurrently with simultaneous spontaneous dissections of four peripheral arteries in a young man.
