Pediatric renovascular hypertension (RVH) associated with neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) is a rare entity that is often resistant to endovascular treatment. A 12-year-old girl with NF1 and hypertension presented with severe stenosis of the right main renal artery and its posterior segment, the latter of which thrombosed spontaneously, and total occlusion of the celiac artery with rare branching of the accessory middle colic artery. She underwent successful reconstruction of the anterior segment of the right renal artery, and has been free of medication for ten years. A review of the recent literature suggests that renal artery bypass remains the best treatment in pediatric RVH with NF1.
