A 16-year-old boy was admitted to our hospital with uncontrolled hypertension. A left renal artery aneurysm was detected on colour Doppler US and CT. Renal arteriography demonstrated the aneurysm and focal renal parenchymal areas of decreased perfusion. The renal artery aneurysm was successfully treated by transcatheter coil embolization.
