Abstract

We report what we believe to be the first case of a child affected by two rare vascular diseases complicated by kidney failure and successfully treated by kidney transplantation. Case presentation: A 3-year-old Caucasian girl with fibromuscular dysplasia and infantile myofibromatosis presented with arterial hypertension and renal failure. She received a deceased donor kidney transplantation distal to an iliac graft. The technical peculiarities of this transplantation are described, as well as her favorable long-term outcome. Conclusion: Kidney transplantation may be considered in a patient with vascular diseases and a history of iliac surgery.
