Abstract

We report the case of a young pregnant woman with bilateral renovascular hypertension due to renal microaneurysms from an unknown cause, who had a successful delivery. Pregnancy did not affect the disease activity even in the postpartum period. Her blood pressure was maintained within the normal range by administration of labetalol. Although the angiographic appearance of the symmetrical aneurysms in both renal artery beds from the interlobular to arcuate artery levels suggested polyarteritis nodosa of multiple microaneurysms in the bilateral interlobular arteries, the clinical features suggested other causes of renovascular hypertension, such as fibromuscular dysplasia and/or congenital microaneurysms. We were thus unable to reach a definitive diagnosis. (Hypertens Res 2001; 24: 83-85)
