Abstract

A 47-year-old man presented with nonspecific left flank pain and severe hypertension as a result of a spontaneous dissection of an accessory renal artery. Because of the progressive increase in the size of the dissection flap and uncontrollable hypertension, treatment with segmental embolization of the true and false lumen of the accessory renal artery was performed with successful clinical outcome. This case report will address the salient clinical features of spontaneous renal artery dissections and treatment options.
