Case Report: Renal Artery Aneurysm Presenting with Hematuria
Renal artery aneurysm is a relatively uncommon form of renovascular disease. Early diagnosis by appropriate imaging is essential in order to avoid emergency nephrectomy for rupture. We report a 78 year old man who presented with gross hematuria. Doppler ultrasound and CT showed aneurysm of the right renal artery. Because of hemodynamic instability, right nephrectomy was performed with a good outcome.
