RODRIGUEZ CORCHERO, J. et al. Renal artery calcified aneurysm in a solytary kidney woman patient, rare pathology. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.9, pp.672-676. ISSN 0210-4806.
Renal artery aneurysm are uncommon. The true prevalence of renal aneurysms in the general population is unknown (less than 0.4%). Because of more widespread use of Angiography and CT as well as improved imaging techniques, they are diagnosed more frecuently. Fibromuscular dysplasia and arteriosclerotic occlusion of the renal artery are believed to be the most frecuent causes. In general, there are no pathognomonic signs and symptoms of renal aneurysm. Nonspecific complaints include flank pain, hematuria, hypertension and hypotension (suspect rupture of aneurysm). We report a case of a woman with a renal artery calcified aneurysm in a solitary kidney.
