AbstractAbstract PDF
Multiple involvement of arterial fibromuscular dysplasia is unusal and such a case is quite limited in the literature. We present a case of multiple arterial fibromuscular dysplasia with aneurysm formation in a 38-year-old non-hypertensive man. Angiographic study showed multiple aneurysmal dilatations of the right renal, superior mesenteric, celiac axis, and left colic arteries. The resected right kidney demonstrated an aneurysm of the main renal artery and extensive infarction in the midportion of the renal parenchyma. The segmentally resected superior mesenteric artery disclosed a similar nature of aneurysm occluded by recent thrombi. Microscopically, all the resected arterial walls showed both intimal and medial fibroplasia together with periadventitial fibrosis resulting in marked narrowing of the lumen and subsequent thrombus formation.
