We describe a case of renovascular hypertension accompanied by renal failure, arising in a young man with a solitary kidney 4 months after a blunt abdominal trauma. A giant haematoma was found around the right kidney and ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage completely relieved the symptom complex. Nine years later, the patient is normotensive with normal renal function.

Abstract

We describe a case of renovascular hypertension accompanied by renal failure, arising in a young man with a solitary kidney 4 months after a blunt abdominal trauma. A giant haematoma was found around the right kidney and ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage completely relieved the symptom complex. Nine years later, the patient is normotensive with normal renal function.
