Renovascular hypertension is one of the most common causes of secondary hypertension. Renovascular hypertension causes 5-10% of childhood hypertension. Renal artery stenosis is the most important cause of renovascular hypertension. Patients with renovascular hypertension may be asymptomatic or present with many symptoms such as headache, vomiting, convulsion, heart disease, and sudden death. In renovascular hypertension, surgical treatment may be required in severe high blood pressure that does not respond to medical treatment.
In this study, we present a four-month-old infant who developed renovascular hypertension due to bilateral renal artery stenosis, which was controlled by angiotensin II receptor blockers.
