There are two pathogenesis models of renovascular hypertension (RVH) originating from renal artery stenosis. We experienced a boy who had severe hypertension with atrophic left kidney, hypertrophic right kidney, a segmental stricture of the abdominal aorta, total occlusion of the right renal artery. Due to the atrophic change of contralateral, unclipped left kidney, this patient presented various clinical manifestations related to both models of pathogenesis of RVH occurring at the same time. We conclude that this patient presented the middle stage of the two pathogenetic models of RVH, so called the ‘one-clip, one and half-kidney model’.
Key words: pathogenesis; renovascular hypertension; renovascular hypertension; renin-angiotensin system
