Recently, we experienced a case of renovascular hypertension in 7 year-old boy, who came with chief complaints of protracted vomiting and severe headache for 2 days. Right after admission, he developed seizure and loss of consciousness lasting 5 minutes. Blood pressure was 230/180 mmHg at that time. Diagnostic studies were done with plasma renin activity, rapid sequence pyelography and arteriography, which showed severe focal narrowing of left renal artery. Following successful percutaneous translumunal angioplasty, peripheral plasma re in activity became normal and blood pressure dropped markedly. Since then the patient has been treated with either captopil-beta blocker or captopril-diuretics with good result. We report the case with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Renovascular hypertension, Fibromuscular dysplasia, Percutaneous transluminal angioplasy
