The case of a patient with renovascular hypertension related to an arterial kink is reported. The arterial kink was caused by a renal artery aneurysm and was not apparent with angiography. This is the first reported case in which renin-mediated hypertension was clearly related to a correctable mechanical problem from a saccular renal artery aneurysm. Indications for surgical repair of renal artery aneurysm and angiographic findings indicative of a functionally significant renal artery stenosis are reviewed.
