is the most common cause overall, but , renal artery occlusion following aortic or renal interventions, , trauma, underlying hypercoagulable states, and cocaine use are other etiologies.
Renal infarction is felt to be a rare condition with incidence varying based on study: 1.4% in autopsy studies and 0.007% based on emergency department data. However, it is also an underrecognized condition and often missed.
Symptoms often mimic other renal pathology, including acute onset of flank pain or abdominal pain, hematuria, and occasionally fever or vomiting; thus, diagnosis can be delayed. Physical examination findings include acute hypertension and, rarely, other signs of extrarenal embolization, including focal neurologic deficits.
