  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 50-year-old male patient was admitted because of severe hypertension and proteinuria. Left kidney was nonvisualized on IVP and plasma renin activity was elevated. Angiography showed complete obstruction of left renal artery. Then nephrectomy was performed. Pathologically, left main renal artery was completely obstructed by organized thrombus and there was no vascular disease in the wall of the left renal artery. Renovascular hypertension due to idiopathic renal artery thrombosis was highly suspected.
