We report a case of a 25 year old man referred to our department because of a blood pressure of 162/122 mmHg, found during a general physical examination. A renal renin-secreting tumour was found to be the cause of the hypertension. It had a diameter of 4 cm and was enucleated from the right kidney. Subsequently the blood pressure returned to normal levels. Histological examination revealed a hemangiopericytoma.
