Abstract

in English, French

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a disease associated with abnormalities of the arterial wall of medium-sized arteries. These abnormalities can lead to stenosis or less frequently to dissections or aneurysms. FMD is probably more frequent than initially thought. Nowadays, it is often a chance finding during a radiologic exam. In symptomatic cases, poor organ perfusion due to stenosis, dissection or aneurysm rupture may lead to the diagnosis. The aim of this non-systematic review illustrated with a clinical case is to present our current knowledge of FMD and to highlight the necessity of a standardized and multidisciplinary work-up to improve management of affected patients and understanding of the disease.
