Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The renal angiographic findings in our two patients with scleroderma and recent onset of hypertension included minor changes in the distal interlobar and arcuate arteries and a nephrogram displaying diffuse, spotty lucencies. Although the spotted nephrogram is occasionally seen in cases of severe nephrosclerosis, we believe that, in the absence of major arterial changes in the arcuate and distal interlobar arteries, it is virtually diagnostic of renal scleroderma.
