Question:

Which answers are true in patients with fibromuscular dysplasia?
1. Fibromuscular dysplasia typically occurs in older men.
2. Patients may be asymptomatic.
3. Arterial hypertension is a common symptom.
4. Patients may present with neurologic symptoms.
5. Most patients suffer from renal failure.





Answer:

The correct answers for the question "Which answers are true in patients with fibromuscular dysplasia?" are:

2. Patients may be asymptomatic.

3. Arterial hypertension is a common symptom.

4. Patients may present with neurologic symptoms.



Explanation
[FMD typically occurs in young women (less than 35 years). Symptoms may include arterial hypertension with a sudden onset of high blood pressure or an epigastric bruit, transient ischemic attack (TIA) and stroke. Renal failure appears less often. FMD may be diagnosed incidentally or in the course of evaluation for hypertension].

Abstract
We report on a patient with terminal renal insufficiency undergoing hemodialysis since four months. Imaging studies showed complete renal artery occlusion of a single kidney with collateral perfusion. Interventional recanalization of the renal artery was successful with a drop of serum creatinine from 1138 to 163 mol/l sparing the patient from further hemodialysis.
