Abstract

Secondary hypertension is more common in children compared to that in adults, leading to organ damage and increased mortality. Renal artery stenosis could be a sequel to secondary hypertension in children and give rise to serious outcomes. A case of renal artery stenosis in an eight year old boy is presented in this study in whom PTA was performed with successful results. Blood pressure was controlled and all antihypertensive drugs could be withdrawn in a short period of time.
