• A patient had fibromuscular dysplasia of the right subclavian artery and aneurysm formation. Although originally considered as being localized to the renal arteries, fibromuscular dysplasia is a generalized arterial dysplasia. We believe this is the first reported case of this disease involving the subclavian artery.
