A case of renal arterio-venous fistula of congenital type is presented. The clinical state of the patient included congestive heart failure, cardiomegaly, hypertension, palpable abdominal mass with thrill, and a continuous bruit. The diagnosis was established by aortography. At surgery a fistula formation between main renal artery (aneurysm) and inferior vena cava was found and a second communication in the hilum was also detected. Nephrectomy resulted in return toward a normotensive state. The pathophysiology of renal arterio-venous fistula is briefly discussed, and a review of the literature is tabulated and summarized.
