Renal arteries obstructions are not common in the pediatric population. That is the reason why they are a great challenge for their diagnosis and treatment for the clinician when they present. The case of an 8 y/o female who presented with severe arterial hypertension is discussed. Initially, the patient was evaluated and up to 5 antihypertensive medications were started. After complete evaluation, she was found to have severe right renal artery's ostial and proximal stenosis. For these, she underwent recurrent angioplasties and then a bare metal stent (BMS) implantation, due to recurrence of the stenosis. Later the BMS developed a circumferential fracture, so, another stent was implanted. But the second stent used was a drug eluting stent (DES). Since the last intervention she has been stable for 8 years, although, on 2 antihypertensive medications. Renal artery stenosis is rare in the pediatric population. Angioplasty and surgery have been used to treat it. Stent implantation has been used more often in adults for its treatment, too. The use of BMS and DES may add another tool in the armamentarium of the pediatric interventionist to treat these children with recurrent stenosis that fail to angioplasty.
