A case with renovascular hypertension due to fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) was associated with cerebral aneurysm.
This patient was a twelve-year-old girl with cerebral aneurysm and complete obstruction of the right renal artery. The patient's cerebral aneurysm was successfully clipped with successful right side nephrectomy, and pathologic changes corresponded to FMD.
After nephrectomy, the patient's blood pressure became normal without need for medical therapy.
This report suggests that FMD should be considered to be a systemic angiopathy, including the cerebral artery as well as the renal artery.
