HIDALGO, Jorge et al. Embolization of a bleeding aneurysm in a patient with spontaneous perirenal haematoma due to polyarteritis nodosa. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.7, pp.694-697. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVE: To report a rare case of a Spontaneous perirenal haematoma due to Polyarteritis nodosa treated with a selective embolización of the bleeding aneurysm. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is one of a spectrum of diseases thet belongs to the pathologic category of necrotizing vasculitis. Spontaneous perirenal haematoma (SPH) is an unusual complication of PAN. METHODS: We are introducing a patient with SPH due to PAN. RESULTS: The patient was treated with embolization of a left renal bleeding aneurysm of the upper interlobar artery. Pan is the most frequent vascular disease associated with spontaneous renal hematoma. Therefore the diagnosis may be difficult to determine. CONCLUSIONS: A selective embolization of the bleeding aneurysm is a therapeutical maneuver to be considered.
