Abstract

 A Rare Cause of Resistant Hypertension: Idiopathic Retroperitoneal Fibrosis

A 48 year-old lady presented with resistant hypertension and impaired renal function. Detailed evaluation with laboratory analyses and imaging modalities led the diagnosis of retroperitoneal fibrosis with a consequent hydronephrosis. Following one-month treatment with the combination of steroid therapy and nephrostomy catheter insertion, fibrous tissue was regressed and the patient’s blood pressure was under control without further complication.

Keywords: Idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis; Resistant hypertension
