Abstract

An 8-year-old boy was found to have hypertension and bilateral renal artery stenosis at 3 years of age. The blood pressure elevation was unresponsive to vigorous antihypertensive therapy. Surgical correction of the renal artery stenosis by renal autotransplantation was associated with the return of blood pressure to normal. Renal autotransplantation should be strongly considered in the therapy of renovascular hypertension when the only alternative would appear to be nephrectomy.
