Refractory hypertension due to unilateral renal lymphangiectasia: An uncommon case with a surgical solution
Urol Case Rep. 2020 Sep;32 :101177
PMID: 32322527 PMCID: PMC7171455
AbstractWe describe a case of unilateral renal lymphangiectasia (RLM) in a 30-year-old male with severe, refractory hypertension (HTN) and end-organ effects despite five anti-hypertensives. After diagnostic testing, the patient ultimately underwent a successful right laparoscopic nephrectomy with significant improvement of HTN. We review the literature regarding the pathophysiology and management strategies of HTN in patients with renal lymphangiectasia.
