Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a condition where at least one artery has a group of abnormal cells growing on the wall. The abnormal cells cause narrowing of the artery and most often occurs in the arteries leading to the kidneys.
Symptoms include high blood pressure, tissue damage, dizziness, blurred vision, neck pain and chronic kidney failure. Symptoms sometimes appear in the abdomen and arms and legs, as well.
Tests & Treatments
There are several test used to diagnose FMD, such as CT angiogram and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Treatments include medical procedures, surgery and medication.
