Abstract

We presented a 31-year-old female patient with a history of hypertension and severe pulsing headache for about 3 months. The patient had pulsing headaches over the past 3 months with increased very high blood pressure (BP = 220/130 mmHg), sometimes with blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, with no known pathological conditions in her medical history or family background. A digital subtraction angiography confirmed tight stenosis (90%) in the middle segment of the right renal artery. Balloon angioplasty with a stent was the treatment of choice. Blood pressure dropped to normal after treatment.
