Abstract

Fibromuscular dysplasia of the aorta is an exceedingly rare disease with 26 cases reported to date in Medline. We present a case of stenosis of the infrarenal abdominal aorta in a 49-year-old woman with a history of intermittent claudication. The patient underwent aortic endarterectomy, and subsequent anatomopathologic examination of the specimen revealed fibromuscular dysplasia. The possible causes of aortic stenosis in this case, its angiographic findings, and the alternatives of treatment are discussed.
