Abstract

Abdominal aortic aneurysm can rarely cause retroperitoneal fibrosis secondary to the leakage of inflammatory cells from aortic plaques to the retroperitoneal area. In this study, we present a case with severe hypertension and acute renal failure secondary to retroperitoneal fibrosis related to abdominal aortic aneurysm.
