Abstract

A 48 year-old female patient presented with arterial hypertension. Computed tomography angiography revealed small stenoses alternating with areas of dilatation (due to small fusiform aneurysms) in the middle to distal portions of the main renal arteries, creating a “string of beads” appearance, findings in keeping with fibromuscular dysplasia.
