A case of hypertension caused by an arteriovenous (AV) aneurysm of the main renal vessels has been described. The AV connection was obliterated by an approach through the venous aneurysmal side of the fistula with successful preservation of renal function and return of the patient to a normotensive state. The factors considered important in the treatment of this correlation are discussed.
