We report two previously healthy males aged 33 and 37 years, presenting with severe pain in the right and left part of the abdomen, respectively. An abdominal CT scan showed in both a kidney infarction. An angio-CATscan showed changes compatible with a fibromuscular dysplasia in me renal arterial wall. An angiography showed an intimai tear or complex dissection flap in both cases. Both had a satisfactory evolution with conservative treatment. The relationship between fibromuscular dysplasia and spontaneous dissection of the renal artery is discussed.
