Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 36-year-old woman was referred for the evaluation of refractory arterial hypertension with vasculorenal profile. Abdominal multislice computed tomography angiography (MSCT-angiography) was performed for further evaluation. Bilateral renal artery involvement was demonstrated with aneurysms, stenotic segments, and a string-of-beads-appearance in the right renal artey. We discuss the occurrence of fibromuscular dysplasia as a cause of refractory hypertension in young women and the increasing importance of MSCT studies for its diagnosis.
