Spontaneous renal artery dissection is a rare cause of renovascular hypertension, but the renal artery is the most common site for dissection among the peripheral arteries. Since the mid 1980s and with the advent of radiologic procedures, renal artery dissections have been increasingly recognized. However, they are still uncommon, and the absolute number of cases reported in the medical literature is less than 300. Cases of bilateral renal artery dissection are even rarer and are reported in very limited case series.
