Renovascular hypertension is defined as elevated blood pressure levels due to the stenosis/ occlusion of the renal artery caused by fibromuscular dysplasia or atherosclerosis. We present the case of a 59-year old female patient with recently diagnosed arterial hypertension due to renal artery occlusion through intimal fibromuscular dysplasia. In this case, arterial blood pressure levels have not been controlled by maximum doses of antihypertensive drugs, used in association; rapid deterioration of the renal function, as well as important kidney damage, proven by imaging explorations, motivated the laparoscopic nephrectomy.
