Renovascular disease is a condition in which blood vessels to the kidney are narrowed. It causes between 5 and 10 per cent of all cases of childhood high blood pressure.
The most common form of renovascular disease is narrowing of the main arteries, called renal artery stenosis. This may affect one or both kidneys but sometimes the smaller blood vessels inside the kidneys are also affected.
