MOREIRA, Joana et al. Renal Artery Aneurysmcase report. Angiol Cir Vasc [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.4, pp.215-218. ISSN 1646-706X.

One case of a large left renal artery aneurysm in a young patient 22 years old is presented. He appealed to his assistant physician a few weeks after development of left back pain. Abdominal ultrasound imaging study has been requested. Suggestive abdominal aortic aneurysm was detected. This finding led to the transfer to our hospital where he was admitted conscious and hemodynamically stable. A pulsatile epigastric mass with a systolic murmur on auscultation and thrill were detected. Angio-CT scan revealed a left renal artery aneurysm, 16 cm in diameter. Given the clinical stability and lesional topography we decide a previous embolization of left renal artery, unsuccessfully. The patient underwent then left total nephrectomy, through thoraco-abdominal incision. No local or systemic complications in the postoperative period. Discharged at 8th day maintaining normal renal function and hemoglobin levels. Renal artery aneurysm was confirmed in a pathological study of the surgical specimen.
