Synopsis

An arterial disease characterized by nonatherosclerotic thickening of the arterial wall, resulting in stenosis, occlusion, aneurysm, or dissection. Most commonly the renal arteries and internal carotid arteries are affected, but pathologic changes have been found in nearly every arterial bed. Among adults, there is a strong female predominance of fibromuscular dysplasia.

Although classically this was considered to be a disease of young women, recent cohort studies demonstrate a broad age range at diagnosis. Clinical presentation varies significantly and correlates with affected arterial beds. When affecting the renal arteries, fibromuscular dysplasia is a well-described cause of renovascular hypertension.

For more information, see OMIM.
